The Editing Code


The “Editing Code” puts the responsibility of editing on the students.  To use the code, look at each line of writing one at a time, and mark the corrections that need to be made in the left-hand margin using tally marks and the code below. Then give the writing back to your child for them to make the necessary changes.
