Extreme Makeover Writing

This book is primarily designed for teachers of writing grades five through nine.  The idea came from the hit television reality show “Extreme Makeover Home Edition”.  In this show, viewers watch as builders tear down a house and rebuild it so that it becomes someone’s dream home.  So, why not take this concept and transfer it to the world of teaching kids how to revise?  With Extreme Makeover Writing Edition, students are divided into “design teams” where they work collaboratively to “tear down” a rough draft and “rebuild” it with the tools of revision.
