Editing: Polishing Our Writing

In advance: Prepare Draft Model paragraph (see Lesson 9 teaching note). A model has been provided in supporting materials. However, you will need to handwrite this draft so students can see the revision process in action. In this lesson, students will edit their work. Be sure to delineate the difference between revising (the work of Lessons 8 and 9) and editing. Revision is to look again at one's work to see how to make it a stronger piece of writing. Editing is polishing the existing writing for small details and corrections.
