This exercise gives you practice in thinking about how to revise your paper.
Read your first draft slowly and carefully. Read it more than once.
1. Identify 3-4 substantive areas that you will revise. For example, will you revise the thesis to make it more specific? Will you give more examples from your text? Will you include more quotations/references?
2. Write down each area that you think you might revise AND explain WHY you think it needs revision AND state HOW you will revise it
Do NOT include spelling or grammar or vocabulary–these are important but they are issues of editing, not writing.
