Description

When teachers are asked, "What's the toughest thing about teaching writing?" they usually answer, "Revision." Here, finally, is a book that will change their opinion. Janet Angelillo offers a rigorous, yet accessible guide that treats revision as the rich, satisfying activity that it is meant to be. She provides ideas, inspiration, and classroom illustrations to bring it alive and make it possible for all students. In short, she makes revision matter!

How to use this product:

The Teacher as Writer in the Writing Workshop
We learn so much about teaching writing by tackling the writing process ourselves. This activity gives our teaching authority and honesty, and it allows us to figure out the content of our teaching by working through difficulties we encounter. Many writing teachers (Calkins, 1994; Graves, 1994; Murray, 1985) encourage us to do this. Tom Romano (1987) tells us that children learn best from teachers who “actually get in the water with them.” Regie Routman (1996) urges us to let our students see us go through the same struggles they do. When we write, our lessons are sharper, our teaching smarter. Save your revisions during the school year and make note of your questions, your intentions, your general feelings. This will not only make you a better writer and teacher of writing, but it will give you rich material to use in mini-lessons and conferences. Put these onto overhead transparencies and you will have authentic samples of many revision strategies, as well as notes about how each one worked for you!
