This lesson uses a "COPS" acronym for editing student work. The idea of associating students who may be from neighborhoods where they have negative dealings with cops is not a good idea. Also the idea that the average black man are targeted by cops and is most likely to be incarcerated is a poor idea for having students be subject to be sanctioned or monitored by COP on their work. That can be a layer of perpetuating oppression-imprisoning the mind in students' thought process in their attempt to think and communicate. Oppression begins in the mind through the thought process. But, the thought is good. It is a good idea to have an editing sheet to support student when they are in the editing stage of writing. I have my students use a sheet to remind them to go back and edit before publishing their work.
