PREPARATION

This lesson is a follow-up to Collaborative Stories 1: Prewriting and Drafting. Students will have already collaboratively written a draft of a story, which will be the basis for this revision activity. The story should be written on chart paper and posted on the wall in such a way that the entire story is visible.

The emphasis of this activity is on revising for content, not editing for spelling errors or other language conventions. If students point out mistakes during the revision process, acknowledge their contributions and make the changes; however, this lesson does not include editing activities.

Before starting this lesson, give students the opportunity to work alone or with partners on the word-game Websites listed in the Resources section (or your own favorite, fun, language sites) where they can practice language skills.
