Instructor: Sharon Linde
Having students edit one another's work is just smart - it gets them thinking about writing and allows them to interact with peers. Use this checklist to guide your middle school students through the process of peer editing.

Peer Editing in Middle School

Middle school students are their own people. They're finding their way in life and thrive on social activity. Capitalize on this angle in your writing class by teaching your students the important skill of peer editing. Not only do they get to interact with one another, they provide valuable feedback to their writing partner and learn important writing and social skills in the process. Plus, students learn about their own writing by viewing a peers, strengthening their skills.
