Drafting and Revising: Writing a Dog Story

Please upgrade your flash player.
One part of a writer's job is to make a story interesting for his or her readers. First, they write a first draft, then they read it and think about how to make it better. Writers revise their work, adding details and checking to make sure that their changes make sense. Watch a video about dogs and work on writing and revising a dog story. On their own, students are encouraged to pick an animal to write about, write a first draft, then revise their story.
