Revising Like a Champ

Instructional Resource

This instructional resource enhances students’ ability to revise text to strengthen the main idea of each body paragraph. Students will see several paragraphs in which they will identify the main idea of each paragraph and eliminate any irrelevant supporting details. The next step would be to include an activity in which students write their own body paragraph using what they learned about revising a paragraph.
