Self-Revising Helps Students Succeed
Lesson 16 of 21
Objective: SWBAT self-revise for specific criteria to prepare for peer revision by checking essays against a requirement list.
Do Now: Do You Have...?
I begin the class by posting a check-list on the board. I ask students to verify that they have all our focus elements in their literary analysis essays:
- appropriate tone
While I take attendance, students haul out their essays and compare their work to the list, identifying missing elements or elements needing improvement.
