Nicole, Thank you for sharing that. You are absolutely right. I teach my sixth graders that revision is like a consruction zone. You add, move, change, and delete text. I explain that editing is more like tuning a piano. The piano plays, but it needs refinement: check for spelling, capitals, grammar, etc. ~Mary
