Today in class:

Students received a line by line editing/revision checklist for the 15 Sentence Portrait. Students were required to check each line and sign that it has been completely reviewed. After this, students traded with a partner who also reviewed and signed off on the revisions.

When students were finished with this, they were to rewrite a final copy on lined paper.

All these items will be checked at the end of the block tomorrow for completion.

We will begin typing next week.
