Ever find teaching the editing process of writing to be useless? Students don't remember the editing marks, they can't remember the steps to edit their own paper, and their final draft ends up looking identical to their first drafts.
There is a solution. The Table Top Editing Guide creates scaffolding between teaching the editing process and actually completing it. This addition to English in the Middle Year's Table Top Folder Guides provides students with a visual reminder of the steps for editing, the marks to use, a checklist to make sure they are on track with their editing, and suggested sentence starters for talking with a peer about their writing.
Simply cut the pages out and glue them to a file folder, and you instantly have an individual visual cue for the editing process for each student. Model the use of this in class and include a think-aloud, and your students will love using these as a way to correctly edit their papers.
