Revising and Editing

Grade 9
Sep 5, 2022

Revising and editing are the final steps of the writing process. 

  • Revising is improving the ideas, concepts, and organization of your writing.   
  • Editing deals with sentence-level issues (like grammar and spelling), whereas revising deals primarily with the content of your writings. 

Revising and editing are the levels of the writing process in which we can improve work before sharing a final file. 

  • During revising, you add, delete, change or move information in order to improve content. 
  • During editing, you take a relative look at the words and sentences you utilized to express your ideas and fix issues in punctuation sentence structure, and grammar. 

Unity in writing meant that all the ideas in each paragraph and in the entire essay are arranged in an order that gives a clear and logical sense to its readers. 

Coherence in writing translates to arranging sentences in a way that indicates how one idea leads to another, within a paragraph and between paragraphs. 

  • Transitional words and phrases make writing more coherent and effective. 
  • Effective formal writing utilizes specific, appropriate words and avoids slang, contractions, clichés, and overly general words.
