Very nice article in NYTimes full of ideas for how to teach proofreading, strategies, etc. This is a hugely important thing to teach in school and it does not seem to get taught very well at all! Even our student newspaper, which presumably has a real proofreader, is full of errors.
So, I will be harvesting ideas and tips from this article to add to my class next semester!
