Writing Resources for HMNT 1005D: Module 10

Module 10: Revise Your Draft

Your revised persuasive essay is due by the end of this week. Revision is more than just fixing a few spelling or grammar errors. Revision means to look again at your work, evaluate it, and determine if you could present the argument in a more effective way. Be sure to ask yourself these questions (in addition to the feedback received from your instructor) while revising for your final version.

Remember: Even great writers revise their work before turning it in!

  • Do I have an introduction and a conclusion?
  • Do I address a counterargument?
  • Do I include outside sources to help convince readers?
  • Is my essay an appropriate length?
  • Are my paragraphs at least three sentences long and focused on just one topic?
  • Do my paragraphs flow in a logical order?

The recorded webinar below describes specific revision strategies for organization, flow, ideas, and more.
