Product Description
This easy-to-use checklist is a TIME-SAVER FOR TEACHERS and a PRACTICAL TOOL TO EMPOWER SELF- AND PEER-EDITORS for meaningful revisions. Students can reuse this valuable reference for everything they write, no matter the genre. Focusing the student's attention first on the substance of a work, then moving on to the style of the prose, and finally zeroing in on proofreading issues (spelling, grammar, punctuation, format, etc.), this checklist guides writers to revise with greater depth and attention to word power and clarity of communication.

Reading through the 18 steps of this checklist is a lesson in itself, covering topics such as: logical flow, clarity of concepts, tone, specific details, active versus passive verbs, showing versus telling, conciseness, and more.

Students in grades 5 through high school use this checklist/guide to improve their writing. A WONDERFUL TOOL FOR PEER EDITING, as well as self-editing, this list will keep students on track and EMPOWER THEM TO PROVIDE MEANINGFUL FEEDBACK. Try devoting an entire class period to revisions, with students using this checklist, and you will see significant improvements in second and final drafts, rather than hasty, so-called revisions that amount to some minor word changes and corrections of typos. Students will learn to care more about what they write by using this editorial guide.
