Writing Worries

I'm sure I'm not the only 4th grade teacher out there who struggles to get their students on board with revising their writing. My kiddos are so quick to tell me everything is perfect and they are finished. While they are not too bad at editing, it's the revising that gets us every time. "What do you mean you want me to change what I've written?"
So, I model, model, model. Then, I went to a writing conference and got this great idea about STAR revising. It is a great way to give students ideas about HOW and WHAT to revise. I created a document to put in their writing folders and shared it below.

How do other people help their students learn the wonderful art of revising?
