Product Description
These task cards gives students practice revising - an important part of the writing process. Students work on these specific revisions one at a time:
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.

For more task cards from Classroom in the Middle, see: Task Cards, and for more writing skills practice including proofreading, prewriting, and an introduction to the writing process, see: Writing Process and Prompts.
