Editing- 7th Grade

This week instead of working on a writing exercise, I shared a few of my favorite writing resources with students. I walked students through how to use a free online visual thesaurus, Etymology sites, and rhyming dictionaries. It’s important to share a little bit of my own process with students, and show them the work and research that often goes into writing a piece. Then we spent the rest of the session editing some pieces and using the resources I shared. Tune in next week to check out some new poems!



“Writing poetry makes me feel like I can see myself, like I can see my reflection, but not in a mirror, in the world. I write and I know I can be reflected.”
-Oscar S.

“Writing poetry makes me feel free.”
-Buenda D.

“Writing poetry is like your best friend.”
-Jessica M.
