Revising is a tricky task for students to do in their writing. Incorporating revising in the form of student seminars has turned this often hated task for students into an inquiry based focus that helps students see areas of improvement for their writing and gives them what they need to do it in their own writing.
This resource will be a growing bundle that I'll add to when new seminar handouts come.
As of 7/3/2016- The Bundle is now Complete!.
16 different strategy seminars covering the revising focuses of:
-adding a variety of dialogue tags
-talking to the audience
-speaking like an expert
-opinion clue words
I've also included seminar signs with the focuses on them to set up at your stations and an editable checklist template that allows you to add text boxes and include the seminars you will be having in your classroom for students to sign up for.
I'll be adding revising seminars for persuasive/opinion writing focuses later in this school year.
I have a blog post that describes my Revising Seminars
that can be found here for more ideas on how to implement in your own classroom.
My Revising and Editing Poster Set
is not included, but can be purchased separately to use in conjunction with these revising seminars. You do not need them however, to use this resource.
