Journalism Writing Self-Editing/Self-Check Handout for Students - offered in Microsoft Word so you can customize it!

Do you have time to edit students' rough drafts? Isn't reading & grading final drafts time consuming enough? Do math teachers pre-grade homework & tests, turn them back to the student so the student can make corrections, then read & grade them all over again? Sounds ridiculous, doesn't it!?

That's why I'm a firm believer in self-checking and self-editing, as well as peer editing. Here's another handout that I used in journalism, but it can be customized for similar non-fiction or expository writing assignments.

This one has two separate lists: one for "good" things the student did in the writing assignment & one for common mistakes. Written in a way so students are able to understand & make appropriate changes ON THEIR OWN.

This CAN be shared with your students on a secure server or via email. (Paperless, 1:1 and BYOD schools)

This IS included in my Journalism Writing & Planning Bundle.
