Writing Workshop: Time Saving Writing Content Editing Key. 46 writing content comments to respond to student writing in a timely manner. I spent years pouring over student drafts and making the same content comments over and over again!! I finally decided that I kept seeing the same content mistakes repeated, so I created this number key. It works the same way as editing marks, but you use numbers to correspond with the content issues in a students' paper. For example, if a student need to elaborate on a point, write 34--have students refer to the Writing Content Editing Key and they know what they need to do to improve their paper. This editing key knocked hours off my draft editing and helped improve overall student writing.
