  2. 2. How did we get here? The Disconnect What authors have to say: “A good editor is there to make your book better and should be asking you questions.” -Sharon Creech What students think: “Fourth graders say they think they’re bad writers if they have to revise.” -Donalyn Miller “What do I have to change? I already fixed some words. I’m done.” -Middle School Student
  3. 3. In the Classroom ● Skype ○ Geoff Herbach, Laurie Halse Anderson, Gae Polisner ● Authors’ revision examples ● Authors’ advice ○ “The trick is to think of revision as a positive thing--it's your chance to make something good, even better.” ~Amy Fellner Dominy ○ “Making writing shine and pop is ALL in the revision.” ~Gae Polisner
