In lesson #23, I shared DARE as the steps to revising. This lesson will focus on the first letter- D. D stands for DELETE unnecessary information. Many times students add things that aren’t needed for their story. See below for an example. After sharing the poster (or creating your own paragraph with an added sentence or two that doesn’t make sense or fit) with the students, have them go through their own rough drafts and delete things that interrupt the flow to the story or don’t belong.
Next writing mini lesson #25- will be DARE to Revise- ADD
