The writing process is an effective way to encourage students to grow as writers. Although computers offer many advantages to budding writers, teachers at all levels recognise that too often a student's idea of revising and editing begins and ends with spell check. Revising & Editing shows classroom teachers how to address the direct teaching of specific revising and editing skills. This remarkable book clears up the confusion between these two terms that are often used interchangeably. It explores the concept and the goal behind these two distinct practices with specific classroom activities, student samples and a glossary of terms for easy reference. Based on extensive classroom experience the book includes a host of concrete and effective ways to motivate young writers to improve their work. Drawing on a wealth of models, checklists and guidelines, teachers will be able to promote successful writing experiences for fiction and non-fiction. In this timely book teachers will find: * Activities that encourage students to rethink the writing process - from initial idea and draft to final polished product. * A tool kit of reproducible sheets that focus on a range of skills - from word choice, sentence and paragraph structure, to grammar, punctuation and title treatment. * Eight series of student models that illustrate prose narratives, essays, poems and projects and how to use these models with students. * Practical suggestions for the assessment and evaluation of student writing. As students experience the real power of revising and editing, they will discover that writing is so much more than computers and spell check.
