Product Description

These task cards provide students with practice revising - an important part of the writing process - by working on specific revisions one at a time. The specific revisions include:

Removing unnecessary words

Adding details

Replacing common words

Using pronouns to replace nouns

Changing word order

Changing tense or point of view

Using active instead of passive voice

Using direct quotes

Adding figurative language

There are 30 cards in the set. Most of the cards present four sentences with directions to make a specific type on revision to each card. The three final cards each present a short paragraph with directions to make a number of revisions to each. The cards are designed with content and clip art for middle school and upper elementary students.

Each of these cards is designed specifically for revising, where students aim to improve the writing, not just correct errors. Even though there isn't one correct answer for each question, an answer key is provided with possible answers.
