Based on the feedback you’ve received to your e1d2, please sketch out a plan for revising your essay. This revising plan should include:
- Summary: Please offer a brief description of your essay and the advice your readers have offered you about it. What do they describe as the strengths of your piece? What would they like to hear more about? What do they feel you could lose? What parts did they suggest you rework or rephrase? Please make sure to identify which readers offered what advice.
- Add/Cut/Change: Where do you now plan to add to your essay? Be as precise and detailed as you can. For instance, “I need to write a new second paragraph in which I offer a map of my essay” is much more helpful than “I need to work on my introduction.” What sections of your draft are you thinking about cutting? What sections do you need to rework or rewrite? Again, be specific. The rule is that you must identify at least one section in your piece that you plan to add to or develop, one you plan to delete, and one that you plan to significantly revise.
- Questions: How else can I help? If you ask specific questions, I’ll try to offer you concrete advice.
Pleas email me your revising plan by 4:00 pm on Fri, 3/20. I will email you back by class on Tues, 3/24. I will also hold extended office hours on Wed, 3/25, and Thurs, 3/26. The final version of your essay is due on Mon, 4/06, at 11:00 am.
