Product Description
Good revision is like a makeover – a significant, transformative, and visibly different draft from “before” to “after” that changes the quality of the writing. Reframe the concept of revision for students with this metaphor in a quick lesson that can fit into ANY writing unit!

This one-day set of materials includes the mini-lesson, including some premade Q&A, group practice, and some exit ticket questions to check for understanding. It discusses why we revise, what it can look like, the STAR method, and some things to look for. Follow this lesson with your own assignment and your own expectations for how you want them to revise!

This 15-slide, 6-page download includes:
• PPT lesson
• Guided notes
