I also use small group for conferencing. As part of the conferencing, the students use map colors to help focus on different editing steps. There are designated colors to help them add depth and creativity to their story. I have used this with 4th and 2nd grade. I also use it with my own 11th grader on her stories.
I like the color maps! I saw a color coding strategy being used and plan to start using it myself!
Thanks for the tip!
