The most daunting tasks of writing—revision and editing—just became easier and more manageable! Here, Ruth Culham targets specific skills with short, powerful activities that help students gain independence and confidence. Students learn to revise their work for ideas, organization, voice, word choice, and sentence fluency, as well as edit for conventions.
Includes 180 reproducible/downloadable activities—one for each day of the school year—plus think-abouts, scoring guides, checklists, and more!
How to use this product:
Focused Writing Practice: Distribute photocopies of the warm-ups so students can work on them on their own or in small groups, or make them into transparencies to use with an overhead projector and revise and edit them with the whole class. Sample responses and answers are provided at the back of the book!
