This set of 24 task cards allows students to practice revising paragraphs. There are six original paragraphs, each of which have four question cards over the following skills:
-Adding details to elaborate on a topic
-Removing details that do not support the topic
-Moving details to the most logical place within a paragraph
I have used these cards mainly in small groups, and have been amazed at some of the discussions that I've heard from my students. So often in revising and editing assessments, there are multiple places that a sentence could fit within a paragraph. I have enjoyed hearing my students put their heads together to find the "best" place for the detail, and to decide together which detail does not support the topic.
Thanks for looking!
