Elicit participation by asking them to find at least 5 errors to correct, and when

theyve found them, to find another 5. Then get them to compare their

corrections with a partner.

Find and correct as many mistakes as you can in the following:

STEP 2: Copy the words on the slip on the board and correct them as follows:

Since landing at New Yorks JFK Airport last April, Thambi has

been attending Manhattan High School, which is in his

neighborhood. In Grade 5, he won a chess competition. His

parents and community are very proud of him.

Label the kinds of mistakes using the Super Editing Checklist (below).

STEP 3: Hand out the following Super Editing Checklist and remind them of the

mistakes theyve learned to correct. Then get them to do the corrections

according to the numbered mistake, e.g. under 1. Prepositions, theyre to

correct for prepositions but not for spelling or SVA.

STEP 4: As they complete their work, those who finish first should sit together to

check their work. As others finish, theyre to look for partners for mutual

checking.

STEP 5: When everyones had the opportunity to check and recheck, the teacher will

go over the correct answers on the board. The students will keep their

checklists permanently and use them for checking their own writing or for

mutual checking.
