Using Revision to Deepen Student Work in Puppetry

Erin Orr’s 3rd grade puppetry students are rehearsing a shadow puppet show in front of their classmates, who have been asked to observe and give feedback. One student suggests that the performers make their show more surprising. This inspires Erin Orr to ask each student to perform their line of narration in a new way.


  • Rehearse with a purpose

  • Accept the feedback that makes sense to you

  • Try out revisions right away if time allows
