Supervised Peer Editing

Peer editing is a difficult skill for students to learn. As adults, it is difficult for us to edit ourselves and our peers, so imagine how difficult it is for children. Keep this in mind when teaching your students peer editing skills.

After you have provided instruction in peer editing, you will want to supervise students in action. This is sometimes difficult to do during writers' workshop since most students are working at a different pace or on a different step in the writing process than others. When students are learning the skills, you can collect rough drafts, ready for peer editing, for a few days, so you have a group of students peer editing at the same time. Put these students into pairs.

Observe each pair closely as they edit each other's work. Remind students of the lesson plan where you instructed them on peer editing if you see any pairs having trouble following the checklist, finding mistakes, or correcting errors. You can gently guide students into being good peer editors if you watch a small group closely and provide instruction as they are in the process of helping each other with their rough drafts.
