Writing Correction Activity
« on: April 16, 2019, 12:45:57 PM »
I got this idea from a British Council lesson for writing error correction. This activity would involve peer feedback for students. First, you would want to teach a few grammar points to the students, issues that you find that are common in their writing, and maybe provide a list of examples. After the students have finished a writing assignment, you could have the students provide each other peer feedback, line-by-line, focusing on the grammatical issues. It would be a good idea to do this with a shorter writing sample, and don't provide too many grammar features to watch for; you don't want to discourage students with too many corrections. This would be a good activity to help raise students' awareness of important grammatical features. You could also have them explain to each other what the errors are after doing the corrections.
