Why is editing such a struggle for so many students and their teachers? The short answer? Editing is hard. We’ll look at the complexity of the editing process and the nature of young learners, and then consider implications for instruction. You'll walk away with a fresh perspective on what editing success might look like in your classroom (it might even be happening already!) as well as practical ideas based on best practices.

An English language arts teacher for 31 years in Alberta, Robin retired in 2016. He has since authored two novels for children. He enjoys the calm, quiet life of a writer, but also nips out of his office as often as possible to venture back into the world of education, having shared his expertise with thousands of teachers at conventions over the past 7 years. And of course he loves visiting schools regularly to get some inspiration from some of his favourite people—his young readers.
