Editing Made Colorful!

Do you have problems with students editing their own writing?  They want to rush through one of the most important parts of the writing process so they can get to their favorite part, publishing.  Sound familiar?  I have found that color editing works well with my students.  It guides them in what to look for and is great for those visual learners. 

This is the poster that is displayed in my classroom. 


Students follow these steps to self-edit their own writing.  They quickly discover that if they have a red, then they MUST have a green. 


After they mark all that needs to be marked, they go back to make sure their punctuation and capitals are correct. 

Editing isn't so dull now, it's actually quite colorful :)!

You can download my Color Editing Poster for free at my TpT store.

This is a fantastic idea! I love the fact that the students will begin realizing that the red and green go together.
