Now your students can make sure that they check everything when they are editing their work… no mistake gets left behind!
Often students think they have edited their work, but they can easily miss some of the most important aspects. Students use this checklist by cutting one out and sticking it into their books at the end of a piece of writing. They then tick each of the elements off when they have checked it and initial it when they have finished to indicate to you that they have carefully checked everything.
