Read, write and revise

Read, Write and Revise - I will show some techniques to revise while showing students how to "Show, Don't Tell."

Ana Siqueira

45 Minute Program

 

$129


First, I will talk about my revisions and we will compare my first drafts with my final ones.
Then, we will do some generative writing to come up with ideas.
Students will write a paragraph and then we will work on peer critique based on the technique
"Show, Don't Tell."
Students will not be forced to share. And if needed, I can also work with my own examples.
