Travel Guides by Young Bloggers 2: Singapore, Hong Kong, and Paris

Hello, my dear colleagues, students, and parents! Last week I was a guest in Shavy’s classroom (Shavy’s English Hut) and we had an amazing lesson where the students learned how to write a tour guide for their favorite city through discussion, exploration, and collaborative writing. They have written articles about their favorite places in pairs and the articles you will read below are completely unedited and shared as the students wrote them.

Another task in this short project is for students to learn to be peer-editors. They have a task to follow a feedback rubric (shared at the bottom of the article) and then post their feedback as a comment on this page. My platform is read by teachers and parents all over the world, so another aim of this project is to make all our little writers PUBLISHED BLOGGERS, and spark their joy for writing in the future.

Without further ado, here are the blog posts!

Travel Guide: Los Angeles by Daksh Sharma and Aradhyaa Jain

Los Angeles is a city filled with picturesque places. We need a passport and a visa to travel to Los Angeles. It is always advised to have travel insurance handy. It can be useful to us in plethora of ways.  2 

  • If we fall ill while we are travelling somewhere, we can always take the help of the travel insurance to reduce the sum of our invoice. 

Los Angeles is a city where people speak an easy yet complex language which is English and Spanish. 

The weather in Los Angeles is as hard as jigsaw to understand as it changes momentarily  

The currency used here is US Dollars although the city is quite exorbitant yet the view is quite alluring.  

We can move around the city in vast buses or bicycles. Teenagers and kids probably use skateboards and skate scooters to move from place to place. 

From fluffy pancakes to juicy burgers we can find everything mouth watering in the city 

Breath-taking views of Los Angeles 

  • Film City-Streets of Hollywood/ Hollywood 
  • Disney Land 
  • Universal studios Hollywood

Peer-editing: Let’s give feedback to other students!

During peer editing, you read another student’s writing and help him or her improve the ideas, organization, and language use. It is often easier to find ways to improve someone else’s writing than your own.

How do you do peer editing?

1. Always start with positive comments.

  • What was your favourite part?
  • What did you find interesting?
  • What did your friend do well?

2. Give suggestions for ways to improve the ideas and organization.

  • Is the main idea clear? 
  • Are the sentences in a logical order?
  • Are the sentences easy to understand?

3. Are there any mistakes in:

  • Grammar
  • Spelling

4. When you are reading the article of your friend, be polite and offer helpful advice.

Copy-paste this part into the comments and simply continue writing in the same line to give feedback. Please fit the full feedback in one comment. We can’t wait to read your feedbacks!


P.S. PLEASE MAKE SURE THAT EVERYONE GETS AT LEAST ONE FEEDBACK! IF SOMEONE ALREADY HAS 2 FEEDBACKS, PLEASE FIND ANOTHER ESSAY TO READ.
