Google has teamed up with Weekly Reader to create lesson plans for the revision stage of the writing process. This is a great way to learn revision while collaborating in a cool read/write web sort of way. These lesson plans are directed toward teenage students, but any teacher worth his or her salt can adapt and modify to fit other ages.
Learning Google Docs has saved our middle school campus a ton of time by sharing documents and spreadsheets campus-wide eliminating the need to walk to check a sheet in the office or meet just to agree on a revision or final copy. Our students need to begin learning this process as well. Revision is the toughest part of the writing process because the ownership is so near and dear (or laziness sets in). Take this chance to engage your students in the process by utilizing the free tools we have available on the Internet. You will be surprised how many decide to voluntarily work on their writing at home. Seriously.
