Designing Correction

0 0 113
Review in class the list of correction symbols in the handbook as well as any additional symbols you use. Have the students work in groups to first identify their five most common errors, then locate the handbook resources on those errors, and then, finally, design correction symbols that can be used in peer revision groups or when you provide comments. Encourage them to be creative in coming up with symbols.
