Real Revision

Revsion. Real revision.  Does it happen in your classroom?  Do your students dig in to their stories, searching for ways that they can improve their ideas, voice, word choice, organization, or sentence fluency?  Or do they go through the motions-- editing for capitals and punctuation, maybe changing a few words here and there because they know how happy it makes you? 

Kate Messner is an author and a teacher who has struggled through the revision process herself and has decided to share her secrets with us in her new book, Real Revision.  She even shares her other author friends' secrets!  So exciting!  You can preview the book here.  Check it out!
