Understanding the Prewriting Tool

Table of contents

Great writing begins with a great plan.  Prewriting is an important step in the writing process, so Revision Assistant includes an outlining tool to help your students organize their thoughts and get started with their essays. The Prewriting Tool is flexible enough so you can adapt into established prewriting exercises. You can review your students' prewriting content right from the Student Work page.   The Revision Assistant prewriting tool focuses a student on creating a thesis, supporting this argument, and concluding the essay. Once students are finished with their prewriting they can send it to the writing space with a click of a button.
