When writing, students should be provided with guidance and support. This will help students make their writing get better and better. As the student ages, his or her writing will become more structured and detailed. Also, the student must learn to focus and narrow their topic as well as learn to revise and edit their rough drafts to make them into a final draft. In this quiz, the students will answer questions about staying on a topic while revising and editing their writing.
