Revision Assistant – essaty

Thursday and Friday we will be going to the writing lab to work on a narrative essay in Revision Assistance- a new program the students will be using through the next four years in preparation for EOC prompts, AP exams and a future as writers in the real world.

A brief overview of the revision assistant program can be watched here:

We will work on these together Thursday and Friday; however, the students are encouraged to work at home and continue to “signal”- turn the work in for the program to give advice and direction as to how to improve their writing.

The final copy will be due by Thursday, October 20th.  They must be submitted through Revision Assistance and printed (this is necessary in order to share later in class).
