Reflection and Revision

Things I should try to do when revising my draft

1- I tend to get very repetitive so I have to learn how to remove that from my writing when I’m revising my essay.

2- Add more details about the topic that I’m discussing because sometimes I tend to go off topic and then the reader gets really lost.

3- While revising my draft I have to work on removing all grammer mistakes.

Reflection and Revision.

Some thing that I would do to revise my draft would include:

  • Make connections:How does this paragraph relate to what I’m talking about.

  • Write a bold beginning: I need to figure out what the readers really wants.

  • Focus on individual paragraphs:I should make little paragraphs instead of one big paragraph.
  • Be specific:Add details and background information.

Your prompt

Read the essay by Giles on Reflection and Revision.

Then address this prompt: Based on what you’ve read and what we’ve discussed in class, brainstorm some ideas about what you want to do to revise the draft you’ve done. What do you think you can/should do next?

Remember: revising doesn’t mean line editing (although you’ll want to do that, too); revising means re-thinking, re-seeing, expanding ideas, re-organizing, throwing out, adding…

Also remember that you’ll be getting notes from me and from your writing partners next week so you can write Revised Draft. After that, you’ll get more notes from me that you can address when you do your Final Revision for the Final Portfolio.
