My students of Std.8A and I came up with a novel idea of doing the revisions in a useful way. They, in groups, discussed and prepared a collection of diaries, letters, character sketches, editing exercises, phrasal verb collection, language exercises etc. While they were doing it I expressed my interest in publishing their question bank through English Blog. They became very happy and started doing it more sincerely.
They corrected each other's mistakes, polished and chiseled the answers and found time to get it typed using the computer lab.
Please note that this is a students' work and not complete in any manner as a study material. This is just an example of how students will become self motivated to do revisions if they have a specific motive before them.
