What is the difference between revising and editing? Allow this video and accompanying slides to instruct your class on revision so that they can find out the difference and apply that knowledge. The narrator gets into the nitty-gritty of revision by introducing complex transitional words and sifting through a paragraph of an essay in response to "Mrs. Manstey's View" by Edith Wharton to find and correct areas that need revision. She does talk a bit fast, so you might show the slides instead, or pause the video occasionally. After viewing, pupils can take a fine-toothed comb to their drafts and revise the flow of their writing.
