Product Description
Our students tend to make the same mistakes over and over in their writing. We can correct each mistake on an individual basis, or we can give students a toolkit to find out which mistake they made and how to fix it themselves. The Common Writing Mistakes PDF presentation addresses the top 10 writing mistakes that students make by explaining the rule and providing clear examples on how to fix the issue. The top 10 writing mistakes covered are….

✔ Possessive Rules
✔ Point of View
✔ Homophones
✔ Past Perfect Verbs
✔ Vague Nouns
✔ Proper Nouns
✔ Use of Tense
✔ Comma Rules
✔ Inserting Quotations
✔ Proofreading Checklist

What's included:
✔ 11 Slide Presentation (PDF & Editable via Google)

How to use this resource:
I suggest going over the presentation with all students after providing them with a digital copy via Google Classroom. Answer any questions they may have.
Refer back to the presentation as you grade student writing. For instance, a comment I leave on a student’s Google Doc might be, “Review use of Vague Pronouns in paragraph 3.” This is much more effective than making the correction FOR the student like I did for years. He/She can easily find the error made and make appropriate corrections. This results in an effective transfer of information.

Common Core State Standards
Language 1: Demonstrate an understanding of English grammar conventions when writing
