Do you have them re-write the whole sentence?

Do you have them rewrite the entire sentence with the corrections or do you just have them use editing marks to correct the original? I've done it both ways but became discouraged with how long it took some students to complete. In the last half of my year, I decided to change it from individual work to having them work in table teams to do both their math and language. Every person had to do their own page, but they all had to agree. When the entire team was done, they would bring them to me for review. I put a star on each problem and if it was wrong I left it blank and passed it back to the team. They were all responsible for helping each other get it right before they could return to me. This seemed to speed up the process and it challenged them. I was very pleased with my test scores!!!
