The Revision Project

Revision can be a difficult process for writing students. This project uses peer-to-peer learning to coach students through various aspects of the revision process. Based around video clips of experienced college writers from the University of Michigan talking about their revision processes, this website covers such topics as how to set priorities for revision, how to make use of teacher and peer feedback, how to manage time in the revision process, and so forth.

In addition to the videos, the website provides teaching resources, including sample student drafts and revisions, and lesson plans. It also provides polls (so students can "test" themselves on the materials and compare their answers to their peers') and prompts for reflection and commentary.
