Plan, Write, Peer Edit, and Publish

Students had their first chance to peer edit today and I thought they did a remarkable job. The last 4 weeks I have been conferencing one on one to show them how to have those important editing conversations. Today they were paired up with a colored pencil. They read their paper while the other partner circled things that needed to be edited and stated why. Then they switched jobs. Most everyone was ready to work together and we only had one group that needed guidance. They are now on to publishing. I can't wait to read their opinions on the best book they are reading currently.
