Writing is a HUGE focus for us now as we are gearing up for the MSP (which is only 4 short weeks away!) so today we revisited the process of revising! Students have really been slacking on their writing and really creating no revisions of any meaning in their writing - what a shame! So today I took an actual paragraph that was submitted in our last final draft and we are completely remodeling it!
We started with the paragraph a the top of the page - BORING! Together we came up with a real character description of the looks AND actions this character could have. Tomorrow students will turn in their revised paragraphs and I can't wait to see what they came up with!
