Conferring Cycle 3: Standardized Tests
Day 9: Proofreading
Challenge: Show your students a few pieces of writing, with various commands of Standard English, and have them discuss how they can be edited and improved so they’re easier to read. Then teach your students how to proofread their own written responses.
Is it easier for your students to find their mistakes or someone else’s?
Why do you think this is?
How will you help your students remember to proofread their writing before they close their test booklets?
