EDITING MADE EASY: Strategies For All
(Course Number: ED443T)
Does it seem that your editing lessons are not really connected to what students are writing? Do some students still struggle to write complete sentences, while others have mastered that but struggle with other conventions? How do you take all students to the next level?
This class teaches you to focus and build on what your students are doing right. Instead of targeting student errors, learn how to build on their writing strengths. Use literature and well-written sentences to show students how their sentences can be crafted. Find ways to make editing a daily part of your writing time.
It IS possible to have fun while teaching editing, grammar and conventions to all of your students! Each chapter provides you with ideas you can use immediately.
Appropriate for teachers of grades 3-12. This class is also ideal for teachers who work with ESL students.
The text is Everyday Editing by Jeff Anderson, available at Amazon.com for $15.

One of the top 5 classes I've taken
I’d like to express my appreciation for you and your class. Rarely do I take an online class where I feel like I actually learned something I could use and this one is in the top five classes I have taken since I have become an educator. I was really not expecting to get so much out of the course as I did, and for that I thank you. I also am impressed by how quickly you got back to me as I turned in assignments. It was fun to check my email and see that you had responded, and were positive in that response as well. My only regret is that I didn’t notice that I could request more feedback until now! I hope you enjoy the rest of your summer and school year. - Clint Hill, English Department Head
