This project takes into consideration something that high school writers often overlook—revision and rewriting. We visited the classroom on three occasions to lead different kinds of revision workshops. Victoria led workshop one that focused on structure at the thesis and paragraph level. The second workshop was developed using some specific methods from Dr. Miles. We also took time to individually help students discuss structure on the larger scale and how to make that structure useful at the level of argumentation. The third visit was for individual and group conferences with students. Tori also took the role of mentor for two students and read, offered insights for revision, and signed off on their individual projects.

This project, although small in scale, offers a set of practices for beginning writers to rethink how they approach revision and rewriting—two projects often overlooked by novices.
