This activity is based on Roald Dahl's "Lamb to the Slaughter" and features a total of four stations: Editing, R.A.C.E. Strategy, Explaining the R.A.C.E. Strategy, and Citing Evidence. This activity works especially well for students who learn
Teach students the importance of diction and its effect on tone using Roald Dahl's "The Landlady." The first resource is used to demonstrate the importance of diction. Students will use the second resource to identify diction used in "The Landlady"
Peer review allows students to provide and receive constructive feedback during the writing process. This strategy also assists writers with becoming aware of the audience and learning to self edit. I use the attached organizer in Writer's Workshop.
