Information - Step Five: Revise

They collaborate with peers to ensure that their written work conveys meaningful ideas and inspires readers to take action and/or agree with the author’s opinion.
Students learn how to revise their writing for clarity of meaning. They craft transitions between the paragraphs of their editorials that rephrase their opinion statements and clearly delineate their supporting arguments.
Students learn how hyperlinks can make their editorials more informative and persuasive by giving readers access to additional evidence. Students add the relevant URLs to appropriate places in their drafts.
