Revise and Edit

Today our students have access to computers to do their writing and therefore access to the grammar and spell checker. Perhaps this is also why they're writing has taken a step or two backwards.  After all, they spend a great deal of time texting and using text shortcuts. However, they still need to know how to edit their own work. These revise and edit self-checking worksheets are a great way to start.

A great way to use some of these checklists is to laminate them, give each student a laminated copy and let them re-use them. Wipe them each time and they're then ready for the next task.

Be sure to check out the fact and opinion writing worksheets to get them motivated to write.

Be sure to share with your colleagues.
