Introducing a FUN game your writers can play that encourages reflection, sharing, improvement, and communication: MISSION: REVISION!
This game board is sure to be a huge hit with writers of all ages and with limitless writing units and purposes: narrative…information…argument…poetry…creative writing…journalism…script/speech writing…test prep…grammar study...you name it!!
I've listed a starter set of cards that go with the Middle School Application Essay (narrative) writing unit for $0.99, but teachers can customize the cards or create their own to suit any unit or goal. The board specifies four card groups that teachers can customize additional cards for: Mechanics and Conventions, Group Play, Move Ahead if You Can…, and Oh, No! Just print the cards on colored paper, laminate, and you're ready to go!
Small groups of students will be so excited to gather around the game board with their drafts in hand, ready to have a brand-new experience revising while playing.
The high-resolution game board can be printed or sent to a copy center for printing and laminating. I had Staples print and laminate mine on 16x24" paper.
Print a few copies of the game board and card sets to host a game day in your classroom!
