Conferencing that Drives Revision Implications


•A shift in my instructional emphasis from drafting to revising and editing

•Modeling the questioning used in the conference to help students analyze material we read as a class

•A need to support students to set individual purposes for each piece of writing and an evaluation of rather or not they met that goal

•Early and ongoing practice analyzing author’s purpose during reading comprehension to support students ability to revise
