How many times have you attempted to have students peer edit each other's writing, only to throw your hands up in frustration because they just weren't taking it seriously? Well throw your hands up no more! Gentleman Crow's Literary Emporium has the cure for what ails you with "The Ultimate Writing Center" starter pack! In this kit you will find instructions on how to maintain a fully anonymous writing center, perfect for cross period peer edits for a more holistic editing experience. By removing names from writing, students are able to objectively read an essay or narrative and give it the edit it deserves while simultaneously learning invaluable editing skills to apply to their own writing.
Also included are comprehensive and customizable peer editing worksheets to guide students through the appropriate editing steps, as well as to reinforce writing structure and organization. Not to mention self-edit checklists and even a peer edit review form for students to assess the quality of the peer edit they were given! Everything is fully tweakable to suit your own personal teaching style and the resources you have in your own classroom. I have used this system for many years with very gratifying success, and I have managed to make peer editing worthwhile, so try it out in your own classroom today!
