"Students need to be able to bring the tools of revision to writing the way a carpenter comes equipped for a job with a toolbox," declares the author in this book that brings lessons and strategies into the Common Core era.
Three revision toolboxes are presented—structure, words, and voice—each with dozens of teaching ideas and strategies. Included are tools for targeted instruction such as strategic conferences, reproducible planning templates for narrative and essays, and reproducible revision checklists. With a focus on narrative, informational, and opinion/argument genres, this "toolbox" is designed to help students re-envision revision as an engaging process that is not punishment, but a natural part of narrative and nonfiction writing.
