Grade 7 Editing, Revising, & More Teacher’s Manual Only (printed)
Available in the U.S. only
Need an additional teacher’s manual for your Language Arts or Curriculum Coordinator? The Teacher’s Manual from our Editing, Revising, and More resource sets is now available as a separate resource. This teacher-friendly resource empowers young writers through creative lessons and practical strategies that go beyond grammar to the elements of excellence that create expressive and confident writing. The book begins with revising skills and then moves into the much needed editing skills. Teach the lessons either in the order they are presented or feel free to jump ahead to a particular skill when the need arises.
When using these resources in a classroom, we recommend purchasing the complete resource set which includes 25 student workbooks.
