Fall 2015 English 1A Revision/Expansion/Reflection Assignment Overview: In-class essays: most of us don’t do our best work in that format, right? We tend to think of all the things we could have said only after the stressful experience is over. Well, here’s your chance. This assignment will give you a chance to revise and expand your diagnostic essays and demonstrate how much your writing has improved. The reflective memo you write about it will also help show how your judgment of your writing have improved over the semester.
Re-readthe prompt for the essay, your first response, and my comments. Consult with me during my office hour (or by email) if you want further clarification or input.
Submit final draft to Turnitin.com on the same day the hardcopy is due.
Please don’t just put in the missing commas and fix the misspellings! It is possible to get a lower grade than you did on the original if no real revision happens. Revisions are held to a higher standard than in-class essays.
