A.R.M.S. Revision Strategy

Need to revise?
Add  words, phrases or more information to help make your points clear and easy for the reader to understand. Add transition words, phrases or sentences to tie your thoughts and paragraphs together.

Remove words that repeat themselves and information that does not relate to the main idea of your paragraph or to the topic of the composition.

Move around words, phrases, sentences or even whole paragraphs in order to keep your ideas clear and flowing toward a logical conclusion.

Substitute words with more exact words or phrases that express what you want to say more clearly.
