Trent University :: Revising your Essay
1. Lead a discussion on the writing process. Emphasize the importance of a logical sequence, descriptive writing, attention to detail, and inclusion of key elements. Tell students to let their personalities show in their writing. If possible, provide examples from literature. For example, one can clearly see that Jack London's personality differs from Mark Twain's. Remind students that writing an essay affords them the opportunity to use their imaginations. They should be inventive and original. Even when drawing on their own experiences, they should portray those experiences in a new and interesting way.
2. Distribute copies of (Grades 7-12) Student Reproducible (PDF) and have students review the writing and editing tips.
3. Allow students time to write their essay drafts.
4. Once students have completed their essay drafts (on the topic, Why does your teacher deserve a classroom makeover?), allow time for revision. Divide the class into groups of two. Have students share their essays with their partner. Based on the feedback they receive, have students revise their essays for clarity, purpose, and tone.
5. Have students proofread their essays, fixing errors in spelling, grammar, and punctuation.
