This product includes two revision menus - one for expository writing and one for narratives.
I created direction pages using these menus with each type of writing and for students to use on their own or with a partner.
After they complete three items from the menu, students can use a feedback form to reflect on what they see as their best work.
To encourage collaboration, there is a peer feedback form as well.
Grading this kind of work can be time consuming, so there is a simple rubric with a grading guide.
For each type of writing, I have included a sample text which is then set up for the teacher to easily use to model the different revision strategies found on the menus.
If desired, the teacher can choose to use the examples of each type of strategy that are also included in this product. There are examples of different types of leads and conclusions, adding dialogue, thoughts, feelings, description, and more!
When students are working on their own, it is easy for them to use some of the resources in the appendix to help with their revision process. I created a guide for using dialogue correctly, examples of various ways to improve their sentence structure (grammar review), a list of prepositions, and a list of thought words.
I am happy to answer questions about using this product!
I was a writing trainer for many years and this is my favorite subject.
My goal is to make your life easier while keeping the quality of your teaching high! Best wishes to you all - you are doing amazing work!
