WORKING THROUGH REVISION
@R10 Literacy Newsletter
What is revision?
- Revising is the process of strengthening the organization and development of ideas (content) in an essay.
- All writers revise their writing to improve the content (i.e., the development of ideas, organizational structure, and connections between ideas).
- NOTE: Revision does not mean recopying in neater handwriting, running a spell-check, or changing a few words.
