I looked at your clean, second draft of the Revised Prose Piece #1 for a homework grade. We labeled our first and second drafts of this piece.
- We looked at Having a Writing Conference with Yourself on page 83, and we marked four questions we wanted our peer conferencer to answer for us today.
- We filled out the gold peer conference sheet for Revision #1.
- We looked at what at "A" peer conference looks like on pages 84-85. When you hand your partner's paper back to him/her, it should look crazy, all marked up, so that it's obvious you were thoughtful and thorough in your reading and commenting.
- We talked a bit about editing and noted that even though it's different from editing, it's important to have a grammatically clean and perfect final draft.
We traded Revision #1 with a partner, and we read and marked up the second draft.
We started drafting our letters (...top-secret, but I think you know what I'm talking about).
Create a clean, revised second draft of Revised Prose #2.
Please see the blog for third block for 12/16. That's what we did. :-)
