      Laura-

      I often set up revision stations with protocals for improving each of the six traits of writing, so when students are working on revisions, they can work on the aspect of writing that needs the most work. For sentence fluency, for example, I use the BLT approach, which is asking students to focus on the sentence beginnings, lengths, and types. In the protocol, they have to circle all the first words in the sentence and revise so none repeat. For lengths, they have to put the number of words in the sentence over each period and make sure no two are identical when they are back to back. For types, they have to include simple and compound sentences. Making revisions concrete allows students to move around the room with a different focus for each "read."

      Hope this helps,

        I like to use interactive technology with my struggling readers and writers. If the task is not user-friendly then my kids become bored.
