Remember: This is a draft. Do as much as you can, and bring whatever you have.
In class, you will review and respond to two other students’ drafts in class using the questions that guided our last peer review. We will also work on a “reverse outline” of your paper to guide the revision process.
Here’s why you should bring any stage of your draft, even if you feel like it’s not “ready” to submit:
- If you bring a draft to class, you’ll receive feedback from your peers the same day
- You’ll be able to complete the “reverse outline” and get a jumpstart on revising your draft
- You will receive feedback from me within one week of the assignment’s due date, or by Monday, November 27, and will have enough time to address that feedback
As you work on your draft:
- Review your past assignments: Your Paper Sketch / Storyboard, Annotated Bibliography, your first draft, and the feedback you’ve received from me and your peers
- If you’re stuck, trying using one of the They Say / I Say templates to get started, or the Quote Sandwich templates.
- You can also turn to this week’s readings on “Drafting Your Report” and “Revising Your Organization and Argument” (linked) to help you get started
- Remember to add a parenthetical citation every time you use a source, and an entry in your Works Cited list. For a guide to formatting your citations, check out the MLA Formatting and Style Guide.
Basic info on formatting your assignment:
- Your assignment (in Google Docs, and when printed) should include your name, our course number (ENG 103.0905) your professor’s name (Professor Kitana Ananda), and the date submitted. (You do not need to include this information in your blog post.) Use 1” margins, double-spacing, and an 11 or 12 point font. I encourage you to print on both sides.
To submit your assignment:
- Save your draft as a Google Doc in your writing portfolio (your Drive folder)
- Print and bring two copies of your paper for class
- Come prepared to read and do a peer review for two other students
