Wonderful editing office to help students reflect on their writing and edit their work.
Use this editing office for students to edit their writing.
Have students highlight certain concepts to strengthen their understanding of grammar, spelling, punctuation, etc.
Comes with steps on how to create an "office"
Students write a wonderful story
Students go to the editing office and highlight all punctuation in pink, all capitals in yellow, all spelling words they feel they should look up in blue, etc. (Whether right or wrong: this helps them question themselves and think about their work)
Students go back and correct themselves
THIS EDITING HIGHLIGHTING PROCESS WAS CREATED BY A WONDERFUL FRENCH TEACHER AT MY SCHOOL.
WE SAT DOWN AND CREATED THIS TOGETHER, BRINGING TO LIFE HER IDEAS. I THEN RECREATED THIS CONCEPT FOR MY OWN ENGLISH CLASS.
THANK YOU MME. FANNIE
