Editor's marks - great anchor chart! Improve your writing by having others review it. These are the edits I was raised on. By Teacher Store House
Great to print and display in writers' notebooks so that student's are easily able to flip to the page to recall editing marks that they may use while looking over their or another students paper. Having universal marks used within the class will save students time and confusion when looking over their paper to correct mistakes.
