Rethinking Revision: Inviting Writers to Revise From Seed to Publication (3-8)

March 30, 2021 @ 12:30 pm - 3:30 pm

A traditional view of the writing process has many of us inviting students to revise after drafting. At that point, we share that authors revisit their work with new eyes, making the changes that will bring their true message to light. Yet, when students pick up their pens to do this work, we see that many change a word or two and then exclaim, “I done.” This version of “re-seeing” is not really what we had in mind. In this session, we’ll study ways to revise our own view of the writing process, and bring revision into the earlier parts of our work. From seed to final send off, revision can be happening all the way through; and in the end, can help our students bring forward meaningful pieces that capture the true heart of their ideas.

Audience: All Grade 3-8 Teachers, Coaches, Specialists, and Administrators
Instructor: Dana Clark, TMI/Gravity Goldberg, LLC Education Lead ELA/Literacy Specialist
Location: Virtually Delivered

Payment Methods and Cancellation/Refund Policy: Payment can be made by purchase order (PO) or check. Please mail all correspondence, including purchase orders, checks and agreements to TMI Education at PO Box 922, Madison, NJ 07940. If you are unable to attend a program for which you have registered, email TMI Education at info@tmieducation or call seven (7) days prior to the program to request a refund. No refunds will be granted unless notification is provided within this time frame. TMI Education reserves the right to cancel events for any reason, including inclement weather and instructor illness. If TMI Education makes the decision to cancel a workshop, we will use the EMAIL contact information you have provided to us to inform you. In addition, we will post the announcement of cancellation on the respective TMI Education website workshop page. If TMI Education cancels, participants will be provided a choice of:

  • a full refund;
  • transfer to another, upcoming workshop date and location (space permitting); or
  • credit toward a future workshop. (Please note that all credits expire one (1) year from the date that they are issued.)

Video-Recorded Virtual (Zoom) Sessions and Tips to Maintain your Privacy during a Recorded Session:  As an added value, all virtually-delivered programs are video recorded and accessible to our workshop registrants and Professional Learning Consortium Members subsequent to the session. Therefore, each virtually-delivered workshop and webinar will now have Zoom’s Recording Disclaimer enabled by default. With this feature, attendees will receive a notification when a recording starts or if they join a session that is already being recorded. The participant can then consent to stay in the session and be recorded or choose to leave the session altogether.

Tips to Maintain your Privacy during a Virtually-Delivered Session: Actively engaging in Zoom sessions is important. Participants may have concerns, however, of a Zoom session recording capturing their participation. Meeting hosts or instructors are taking steps to minimize this concern. In addition to the consent, participants can also use the following steps and features to take control of what is shared when a session is being recorded.

  • Change your participant name displayed in Zoom (e.g. only use your first name, replace your name)
  • Disable your video
  • Mute your audio
  • Do not communicate via the chat feature
  • Do not upload an identifiable profile photo

Please refer to Zoom’s Attendee Controls for more information on how to use these features.
