Mini-lessons Cycle 2: Teaching Conventions in Mini-Lessons
Day 7: Conventions during revision
Challenge: Teach a mini-lesson that demonstrates for students the way conventions can be used to revise writing for meaning and clarity. Look at your own writing and identify places to revise the mechanics to make your work stronger. Explain the thinking behind your decisions during your mini-lesson.
Were you pleased with the revisions you made to your writing?
How do you feel about the revisions your students made?
What did you notice as your students attempted to revise using conventions?
What are some follow-up lessons your students need to refine the art of revising with conventions?
