Do your students confuse revising and editing? For intermediate writers, the differences between revising and editing are often difficult to remember. When told to revise, they'll poke through a piece of writing and circle spelling errors. When told to edit, they'll...do the exact same thing!
This file includes a set of activities that you can use to teach editing and revising. You'll receive a word map for teaching revising, a list of revising strategies for students, 2 editing practice pages for standardized testing, 4 revising checklists (by genre) and 4 editing checklists (also by genre).
This is a Word document, so you can customize the checklists to fit your classroom. The checklists are most suitable for students in grades 3-5, although they could be altered for students at other grade levels.
