The Revision Assistant team has created persuasive, expository, and narrative essay prompts for students between sixth and twelfth grades that align with Common Core standards. Some assignments come with source texts for students to reference or analyze. We provide you and the student with a rubric which explains which qualities Revision Assistant looks for in each essay. If you are curious how other teachers have integrated Revision Assistant into the classroom, please check out our sample lesson plans on the Revision Assistant Curriculum Resources page.
Note: Depending on your LMS, there may be additional necessary steps required to use Revision Assistant within your LMS. Please check our Integration Guides for more information.
After filling out the Assignment information, you will be directed to Prompt Library. You can sort the prompts by grade, genre, and if the prompt is source based or not.
This will direct you to the Prompt Page where you can review the rubric, see the Common Core alignments, access the source texts, and add additional directions.
Rubrics and learning standards linked with the prompt can be found by following the links to the right of the prompt.
Once you're ready to assign your prompt, click the Create Assignment button.
What if you want to change something? You can always edit assignments. Simply go back to your the tool in your course and you will be redirected to the Assignment Overview page.
Students see the assignments you created by logging into Schoology and the particular course after the assignment creation process is complete and the prompt is assigned. You do not need to email it to them separately or take any other actions after creating the assignment.
Students will access the assignment from their homepage, as part of your class in Schoology. The prompt will look different according to its status: new, started, turned-in, late, and closed.
