Focus on sentence variety, text evidence, and organization of argument.
1. Highlight all of your compound sentences 2. How much is highlighted? 3. If it is 50-75%, you’re good. If not, revise to add in more sentence variety. 4. Check your other sentences. Are they complete? Subject and predicate? Are they run-ons?
1. Check your essay against your outline. Did you include these paragraphs? 1.Introduction, including your claim 2.Reason #1 to support your claim 3.Reason #2 to support your claim 4.Counterclaim and why it is wrong 5.Conclusion 2. Check your Goal-Setting Worksheet. What was your goal? Did you do that? 3. Underline all evidence from the text. There should be 2-3 in each body paragraph.
Read your essay backwords to catch any spelling errors. Circle them and look up the word. Read your essay aloud to a partner, writing down anything you need to fix. Have your partner read your essay and check for: Capitalization Organization (the 5 paragraphs everyone should have) Punctuation (check for complete sentences – no fragments, no run-ons) Spelling (circle anything that might be wrong, they will look it up) Neatly write your name at the bottom of the essay you check.
Rewrite your essay on a new sheet of paper. This copy should be neat, clean, and free of mistakes – it’s been checked twice! You may type it up at home for 10 pts extra credit. You will turn in all parts of the writing process together on Thursday.
