Wessels, Kathy
Intended to help students improve their written work by their active involvement and by their interest in investing the time and energy necessary to create a finished product of quality, this booklet presents a structured process that teaches children to progress from a draft to a "published" stage, through individual editing, peer editing, conferring with the teacher, and using other skills of revision. After a brief introduction, the booklet discusses the following steps in the writing process: (1) preparing rough copy; (2) editing for spelling, punctuation, and capitalization; (3) revising--expanding details, ideas, and descriptions; (4) paragraphing; (5) making a cover; (6) preparing the final copy; and (7) displaying the books in the classroom. The latter portion of the booklet describes four sessions for training student editors and contains a "publishing" schedule. (HTH)
