Writers complete a worksheet applying these ideas to their own novels.
Oh la la! J'ai mal à la tête! Teach your Francophones different body parts by setting up your classroom like a doctor's office.

Then, pantomime different ailments and have kids stand up or raise their cards when they hear their body part called. Step-by-step instructions are included here.

By working through the packet, they come up with stylistic and content-related revisions, leaving the grammar edits for later. Finally, release the eager editors upon their drafts to revise, revise, revise!
