This product, "EDIT THIS! Revise & Rewrite right," is my newest edition to my Get
Writing Strong campaign (Custom Category: Writing and Custom Category: Freebies). When "Writing from the Heart" and "Writing from the Head" join forces, middle and high school students reveal writing proficiency. With these activities, they combine their writing and higher level thinking skills to assess their pieces, and those of their peers, for what they say (Writing from the Heart) and how they say it (Writing from the Head).
Included in this packet are:
1. Teacher Notes: College and Career Readiness Standards, grades 6-12' Bloom's Taxonomy thinking and doing skills, as well as clarification for the Who, What, When, Where,Why and How to Teach factors.

Two suggestions to teachers from the Teacher Notes page: to encourage students to Get Writing Strong:
1: Make enough copies of the writing revision pages for students to use multiple times.
2: Require students to keep mini-lesson information pages in their notebooks for reference use with any writing, especially graded pieces.
