Many students, especially language minority children need explicit instruction in strategies
Teacher modeling of strategies for revisiting helps students know how to approach some aspects of revision.
It’s important to establish routines for writing conferences, whether they be small group, peer, or teacher to student.
Access to resources such as personal or classroom word walls, picture/word lists for verbs, nouns, emotions, other words for said, etc. help children to be more independent while a teacher conducts conferences or small group mini-lessons
