Reflection: Routines and Procedures Revising Previous Work - Section 2: Let's Get Down to Business

 

When students revise, I ask them to use blue/black ink so that I can see that they understand the revision process.  They edit in red ink.  Before our discussion of revision strategies earlier this year, students believed revising and editing were the same thing.

 Some of the low students need help eliminating “be” verbs.  I work with them to revise several sentences with “be” verbs.  If they can change 2 – 3 verbs, it is a success.
