Revising Narrative Paragraphs
Once you finish writing your narrative paragraph, you'll be ready to start revising. When you revise, you think about the "big picture": your topic and details and the way you build your paragraph using transitions. These activities will help you revise.
Revising for Time Order
Review the order of actions.
Use a time line to list the actions from your paragraph. Review the list to make sure the actions are in time order (in the order they happened). Rearrange any actions that are out of order. Make a copy of this Google doc or download a Word template.
