Taking students through the revision and editing process can be challenging. I use these slides throughout the year to support the process. The PowerPoint briefly reviews usage and style guidelines. The slides can be adapted to different grade levels and learning styles. The examples can be used for whole class instruction, brief practice, bell ringers, handouts, or flash cards. Each practice includes an answer key slide.
The collection of 48 slides (including section headings) reviews:
• Strong paragraphs
• Concise language
• Correct sentence structure
• Verb and pronoun use
• Spelling and punctuation reminders
• Editing and correction symbols
