Reflection: Trust and Respect What's your opinion? Let's get drafting! - Section 4: Demonstrate Skills


Peer editing is a great tool to use in the classroom to help students improve their writing!  Just as the saying goes: "If you can teach it, you've got it!", this is true with writing!  If students can guide each other by noting, for example, where they need a capital or need to fix their punctuation, then they're showing their command of grammar and conventions!  Even if students don't catch every error, this is still great practice!  When I first started allowing peers to edit each others' work, I worried about whether or not students would catch everything, but then I remembered that every paper will of course have been seen by me as well for edits before publishing.  There was the reassurance I needed to give it a try! Not sure about this yet?  Maybe start with just simply having students practice reading their work to each other!  A lot of times, simply rereading your work to someone out loud helps students catch many grammatical and convention errors!  This is a great starting point!
