Locate a section of the handbook that describes a common problem or error for the class. Ask students to come in with examples of the error from their own writing; then have them correct the error and add their example to their own handbook by writing it either in the book or on a sticky note. It may be easier for students to remember how to fix an error when they refer back to their own examples.
