Edit vs. Revise
Revising leads to Rewriting
information, quotes, words, or punctuation that you think will help make your piece clearer or more descriptive for your reader.
information, quotes, or words that you think don't really add anything to your writing, or might confuse your reader.
information, quotes, words, or even entire paragraphs or passages that you think would make more sense somewhere else.
Change or Substitute
words for other words, quotes for other quotes, or less pertinent information for more pertinent information in order to make your reading clearer, more unified, or more descriptive.
“I’m all for the scissors. I believe more in the scissors than I do in the pencil.”

LGW Session 11
Writing Concisely PPT on Blackboard
Although you often see edit/revise listed as one step, editing and revising are NOT the same thing.
Editing: Proofreading your paper for mechanical errors (spelling, punctuation, grammar, etc.) and making fixes, as necessary.
Revising: To "see again," or look at your writing from a fresh, critical perspective. Revising often includes rearranging and rewriting.
Evaluate your peer's paper, using the ReVISIONing Exercise sheet.
Remember - look at the paper with your fresh eyes. Consider organization, development, and clarity. Do not focus just on spelling or grammar.
