I'm really excited to work with students on editing and revision of their written work. I wish I knew more about this so if any of you bloggers know of a good resource for non-English teachers I would appreciate it. I learned (the hard way) when teaching 9th graders to make sure they write out a non-plagiarized rough draft. Now I have had a chance to respond to rough drafts from 7th graders and I like the process of helping them to improve their writing for both content and clarity. I'm looking forward to seeing the finished product to find out if the editing was helpful. Stay tuned!
