Reflection: High Expectations Sequencing the Events With "The Big Circle," Day 2 of 2 - Section 3: Peer Editing


Before this year, I had never utilized peer editing in my class.   It has only been recently that I have really had to switch my thinking and take a back seat to my students in the learning process.  Through the Professional Learning Communities (PLCs) in my school and working with my coach through the Master Teacher Project that I've seen that I could be doing more to challenge my students.

Will the editing look as good as if I had edited it? No.  Will there still be mistakes.  Absolutely.  What I've recently realized is that my class is a learning community.  If I take the opportunity to learn how to edit away from my students how will they get better?  What a big "aha moment" for me.  If you've never given your students the opportunity to peer edit it can be a scary undertaking.  Just like anything else, it takes modeling on your behalf and patience but I will bet that your students will surprise you with how much they can do, just like my students have surprised me.
