520 | Learning Editing Skills!

14 June 2019

Over the past few weeks we have been focusing on writing Informational texts. We have been getting really good at the structure and content of the text type, however, a focus for our class has been to improve our editing skills!

Today we decided to edit a passage of text and have a go at using symbols to edit them. We discussed which symbols suited us best so we can best understand self and peer editing. We then created our ‘Editing Marks’, which we will now use to edit our work!
