Revise

We are going to peer review first. I want to make sure you have enough time before the lesson for today.

Before we peer review, I want you to take a look at your own draft.

  1. Add dialogue, find a spot to add in some dialogue.
  2. Add details of a character or an artifact in your narrative. What can you describe or add details too? Are you giving enough context so the reader follows along?
  3. Add an image to help tell the story. What image would help the reader? What image is related to your literacy?
  4. Effective Title. What should you title your essay? What would be a good title that makes your reader want to read the essay and prepares them for it.Fall Semester Examples
