Revising writing with a partner

I was recently working with 3JWa during their 'Personal Narrative' writing unit. They had already drafted and completed some independent revision but we wanted to help them make larger scale revisions. First, we discussed different lenses we could use to revise our narratives.

After modelling how to use these lenses to look at various aspects of our writing in more detail, we tried  this with students in their writing partnerships. Partner A read their draft aloud and then together they discussed things which had been done well and places where improvements could be made. As they talked, partner A wrote directions to himself for revisions he planned to make. Here is a video of a couple of partners at work.
