Reflection: Real World Applications Biographies: Editing Our Autobiographies - Section 4: Finish Rough Draft Writing and Peer Edit of Autobiographies


The students have done peer editing on a few projects so far this year.  I have found that their ability to use a dictionary is so much higher than students in past years.  They have learned the skills though real world application.  As they are working, of course I walk around and answer any questions.  I am very careful though, and don't answer questions they can find answers to in the dictionary.  Their ability to use the dictionary, even some of my struggling readers, has greatly impressed me.  :)
