One of the things I dreaded the most when I was teaching writing in our homeschool was all the editing. I was constantly reading and marking up papers with a red pen and handing them back to my son to redo. He would then bring back his second and sometimes third draft for me to edit and have him revise again. What if I had sat down and taught him how to edit and revise his own papers, then there wouldn’t be so much back and forth and he would be able to gain a critical eye for writing and editing.
I found the coolest teaching tool from Not So Formulaic. This printable checklist will help your teens to evaulate their content, diction, organization and find their writing voice. You can grab this free teaching checklist HERE.
