Revising: Using Vivid and Precise Verbs and Adjectives

In advance: Review students' first-draft writing (from their mid-unit assessment, Lesson 7) to identify words for the Words That Work activity. Generate words for the Words That Work activity. A model has been provided, but adapt to meet your students' needs. Students will practice using vivid and precise words to help them make revisions to their first draft. Review Part A of the work time to have a vision of what words might go on this chart. Use students' first-draft words if they are applicable.
