Every year the Veterans of Foreign Wars organization offers the “Patriot’s Pen” essay contest. My students always participate in this patriotic contest, because it offers a format for student publication, and because I think it’s important for students to show their patriotism.
As part of the curriculum for teaching the steps in the writing process and the six traits of good writing, I have designed and often use a Powerpoint presentation to help my students peer edit their “Patriot’s Pen” essays.
Here’s that Powerpoint presentation for you to download, edit for your own purposes, and use in your own English/language arts/ELL/ESL classroom. I hope you find it useful.
As always, please show your appreciation by linking, sharing, liking, etc. to help get the word out about my website. Thank you!
