Revision vs. Editing 1. Have ONE person in your group get a sheet of paper. 2. Designate a recorder/writer for your group. 3. You have 2 minutes to discuss the following and create a Venn Diagram that compares what it means to REVISE versus what it means to EDIT.
E DITING SYMBOLS – WHAT YOU ARE GOING TO SEE … Mrs. Douglas’ symbols…a word on SQUIRRELS!!! Traditional Symbols (please fill in) In Edmodo – what circles/highlights mean…do NOT ignore!!!
L OG I N TO E DMODO … Find the essay you submitted and click on the paper/pencil icon underneath your original attachment. NOTE: If you hover over the icon, the word “annotate” should appear. That is what you want to click!!! Doing this will open your document that I graded. Take a look at my marks and responses as I pass back your actual grade.
T HE AP R UBRIC & T HE T HESIS R UBRIC Other things to note… Formatting Do you have your name, then your teacher’s name underneath, then the class name underneath that, and finally the date underneath of that?? Is it all SINGLE SPACED, top left??? Do you have a title? Is the rest of your paper double spaced with no double-double between paragraphs?? Introductions Do you grab the reader’s attention? Do you keep the intro a short and sweet lead in to your thesis? Is your thesis near the end of your intro and contained to 1-2 sentences??? Conclusions Do you provide an overview of the finer points you made WITHOUT rehashing a lot of specific details? Do you restate your thesis in some way? Make sure it is NOT verbatim! Parenthetical Citations – Purdue’s OWL Discuss Literature in Past Tense QUESTIONS SO FAR?!?!?!
P ROPER PARAGRAPH STRUCTURE Take a look at the handout. Select TWO of your supporting paragraphs to work with and work your essay (as it is right now) into the graphic. What you should figure out… THIS COMPLETED GRAPHIC IS DUE NEXT CLASS!!!
L ET ’ S M AKE THIS BETTER … “It is perfectly okay to write garbage—as long as you edit brilliantly.” - C. J. Cherryh Options for Resubmission: 1. Visit the JCHS Writing Center (see flyer on side of the room) and work with a tutor. Once I receive confirmation of your visit, 3 points will automatically be added into your overall grade. 2. Conference one on one with Mrs. Douglas (you must set this up) and also receive an automatic 3 points. 3. Rewrite your paper and submit it. You can do this without any conferencing, but you must know that in terms of the grade, you get what you get. You can submit IN ADDITION to conferencing, as well. However, there is not guarantee of a higher grade beyond the added 3 points. ALL DEADLINES: FEBRUARY 10 TH !!! (no exceptions!!!)
