Same as before. Webtext Chapters 8-10 and Writing Activity 4.
Your final draft should reflect the work you have done to develop your ideas, identify counter perspectives, gather credible research, and draft your essay. You will use feedback from your instructor to review, revise, and edit your rough draft to ensure that you submit your best work.
To ensure your final draft is different from your rough draft, follow the steps below.
Step 1: Revision
Using your instructor’s feedback as a guide, remove content that does not support your points and add content where you need more support or where your rough draft was incomplete. Refine all of your content to improve clarity, idea development, flow, and the overall persuasiveness of your communication. Chapters 8 and 9 of your Webtext will provide guidance to help you ensure you submit your best work.
Remember you final draft should be 3–4 pages (title page, sources list, and feedback reflection do not count towards this total). Utilize four or more credible sources, and cite them in SWS style.
Step 2: Editing
After you finish your content, review your paper to make sure your sentences are clear and error free. Pay attention to grammar, mechanics, punctuation, and formatting. You do not want to distract your audience or negatively impact your credibility with small mistakes. Chapter 9 will provide you with guidance to help you avoid these mistakes.
Additionally, remember you can still use Grammarly to help you with your editing:
Run your Microsoft Word document through Grammarly to identify and correct any issues with grammar, spelling, punctuation, sentence structure, and style. NOTE: Refer to the Webtext to learn how to sign up for and use Grammarly.
Remember to remove all of the Grammarly comments and underlined words before you submit!
Step 3: Feedback Reflection
Remember to include your feedback reflection after the reference page. Follow the steps below:
- List any new feedback you received on previous writing activities.
- Explain how you used feedback from previous writing activities to improve your written communication for the final draft.
- Explain revision and editing strategies from your whole writing process that you used to improve the final draft.
- Discuss how the feedback on previous writing activities will help you improve your written communication.
