Description

This thoughtful book asks teachers to reflect on how they present the editing process to their students. It offers suggestions on moving beyond rehearsing common mistakes and drilling students on what's wrong with a sentence. Instead, we should encourage students to look carefully at their work, and to think about how punctuation, grammar, and style can best be used to hone their writing and communicate meaning. This refreshing and practical guide provides a simple overview of editing within the writing workshop, along with ten detailed sets of lessons that cover everything from serial commas to apostrophes.
