Revision is often a confusing and difficult process for students, but it's also the most important part of the writing process. Revision Decisions will help teachers develop the skills students need in an ever-evolving writing, language, and reading world. Focusing on sentences, Jeff Anderson and Deborah Dean use mentor texts to show the myriad possibilities that exist for revision.Essential to their process is the concept of classroom talk. Readers will be shown how revision lessons can be discussed in a generative way, and how each student can benefit from talking through the revision process as a group. Narratives, setup lessons, templates, and details about how to move students toward independence round out this essential book.Additionally, the authors weave the language, reading, and writing goals of the Common Core and other standards into an integrated and connected practice.
