I made a couple of videos to show my students the difference between editing (cosmetic changes) and revising (structural changes)—I used Jing, a TechSmith software you can download for free. In the first video (http://www.screencast.com/t/3KDBv1wXFdu) , I show an example of editing using a sample student introduction for an essay and Track Changes in Word. I edit the writing (somewhat) and make the sentences more functional—of course, the intro still does not work. In the second video (http://www.screencast.com/t/uhkpj1d1), I talk the students through what revision actually would look like for that intro (moving parts around, eliminating parts, adding more context…). Maybe you can use this to demonstrate the difference between editing and revising in class?
