Reflection: High Quality Task Editing and Revising Your Writing - Section 1: Why this Lesson?


I think it is important to teach students the difference between editing and revising.
If I want students to be able to make both edits and revisions, I need to make sure they know how.

Between the process of editing and revising, I make sure to remind students' of their different aspects, to ensure that they complete both aspects.

I like to remind to students to think about (and/or refer to) my real-life examples of editing and revising.  I keep up a reference chart when we are learning about these skills because I like for students to be able to see editing versus revising examples and apply them!
