Addendum - Rethinking Editing

I love learning from the experiences of others.

Cheryl Oakes shares an effective editing method she uses with her students with special needs at a high school in Maine. Check out her method here using Google Docs and add it to your editing repertoire. As Ira Socol states in Toolbelt Theory, we have a responsibility to allow students to explore the tools which will help them be successful beyond school. To withhold that information is a grave injustice.

Are you still relying on teaching your traditional editing methods? Are they working for all your students? If not, now is the time to explore the methods in this post and the previous Rethinking Editing post.

Thank you, Cheryl, for teaching me something new!
