HOW TO USE THIS RESOURCE
This product can be used in a few different ways:
1. Celebrity Edit of the Week: Introduce one of the updates to your class per week for 20 weeks. Everyone gets a copy and makes the edits and reasoning on their own (or you can do it in groups or pairs). Then you can use the Powerpoint to go over them together as a class and come to a consensus.
2. Writing Centers: Include a packet of the worksheets at a writing center where students can choose which updates to work on. Edits can be made in their writing notebook rather than on the sheet (so you don’t have to make tons of copies). You can also make an answer key booklet for them to use after they are done!
3. Pair Work: Give each pair of students a worksheet and have them complete it together. Then each pair can present the update to the class and share what edits they made. The class can give further suggestions.
4. Group Work: Give a group of three or four students one of the sheets and have them come to an agreement about the edits to make and the rewritten sentence. The group can present the update to the class when they are finished.
