But wait . . . There’s MORE! I have made one bonus lesson that gives you a glimpse into how you can use the Writer’s Notebook to teach revision. If lots of low-stakes writing has a tremendous impact on a student’s ability to write, then regular practice with low-stakes revision will make students better second-drafters.
You will receive one final email tomorrow for this bonus lesson. But if you would rather not wait, click the link below for your bonus lesson right now.
