End of Unit 2 Assessment, Part 2: Revising the Informational Essay

Writers look at End of Unit 2 Assessment: Best First Draft of an Informational Essay handout and use sticky notes to identify things in their work that need editing and revising. They reference their notes to then finalize their end of unit assessment essays on A Mighty Long Way and Little Rock Girl 1957. Finally, they open their scored drafts and begin making edits and revisions to their work before turning in their final essays.
