Strategies

In a circle students round their composition in the class with their names in it. Through peer correction: having their compositions corrected by themselves, they should mark each other's mistakes and write the correct form in a blank paper, suggest improvements and praise it when needed. Then, the texts go around the whole class passing through everybody' hands until it finally get back to the owner who may accept the advices or not.
