Have you heard the amazing story of Austin's butterfly? You can find it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hqh1MRWZjms
First grader Austin was asked to make a scientific drawing of a butterfly. With the help of peer critique, he made five drafts, each one better than the last. His results will astound you and your students. This lesson is not a "nuts and bolts" of how to edit and revise. This memorable lesson is designed to inspire your students, demonstrate the power of editing and revising, and get them excited about this process and what it can do for them. I begin the year with this lesson and it becomes part of our class culture.
This PowerPoint lesson can be used with any grade level.
