Error Monitoring/Self-Monitoring/Editing

Error Monitoring Strategy is a technique used to help students develop proofreading skills and improve basic writing skills. The final goal is self-monitoring with independent use of the strategy.

Student Self-monitoring is an effective tool for behavior change. Self-monitoring has two components, measurement and evaluation (Loftin, Gibb, & Skiba, 2005): That is, the student (1) measures and records his or her own behavior (measurement), and then (2) compares that recorded behavior to a pre-determined standard (evaluation). Self-monitoring can take many forms. One student may use a paper form to rate her study skills at the end of each class period, for example, while another student might verbally rate his social behaviors when approached by his teacher at random times across the school day.

Editing (Self & Peer) this helpful tool will give your students the opportunity to edit their own writing and then observe as their peers edit the same work.
