Notable Examples

posted: 10.9.06 by Barclay Barrios

Locate a section of the handbook that describes a common problem or error for the class. Ask students to come in with examples of the error from their own writing; then have them correct the error and add their example to their own handbook by writing it either in the book or on a sticky note. It may be easier for students to remember how to fix an error when they refer back to their own examples.

At the start of the semester, provide a cheat sheet to your students that lists the most common comments or editing marks you use in marking student errors and in commenting. For each, provide a page number for the section of the handbook students should be checking to address that error or to revise from that comment.
