Helping Students Color-Code Their Way to a More Effective Essay

In this webinar with Brooklyn Joseph, an instructional coach at Caliber Beta Academy in California, participants will discover a student-driven method for color-coded editing that helps students identify specific steps they can take to improve their essays after using the CERCA Framework. This strategy saves teachers valuable time spent on editing student work and has been shown to dramatically improve both the quantity and quality of student writing. It also encourages peer collaboration as students can use the strategy to improve peer-editing protocols in the classroom. Here is a chance to teach students an editing technique that they can use independently and across content areas throughout their educational careers.
