As you know, revising an essay means more than simply inserting a comma here and there or changing a word or two: revising an essay means re-thinking concepts, ideas, and the expression of the writer’s main purpose.You must identify the errors in your papers based on the markings (x) provided by your instructor for your first submission. This time the feedback is not extensively verbal as I expect you to have learned the typical errors you make from your first paper revision. I would also like for you to think about why I may have marked an x on a particular word/ lack of word; punctuation/ structural error. First read through ALL the comments/ x markings before making edits. Then begin making corrections to your essay one by one. You CANNOT improve if you do not read those comments and internalize them in your writing. Take time to read and revise thoroughly. Unless the comment says “good/excellent,” you MUST revise for every comment to get full points. You must feel proud of your revised writing as you complete this task. All students enrolled in ENG 1102 are required to revise each essay and re-submit it for grading. Note: Students will earn a part of their course grade for revising their essays, so failure to revise and re-submit each essay for grading will result in a lower course grade (please see the “Method of Evaluation” section of the syllabus for more details).REVISING ESSAYS: WRITING AND RE-WRITINGThe Introduction: Make sure that your Introduction adequately familiarizes your topic and fits with the main point of your paper. The Introduction may announce a “three-part discussion” that will follow in the paper, but it is not required to do so; writers may introduce their topic then discuss their main points later in the essay. There are many, many ways to introduce a paper, but in general, a good introduction is one that adequately introduces a writer’s main point and topic of discussion, clarifies the writer’s stance/position, and anticipates the main direction of the essay without saying that “I will introduce…”The Thesis: As a reminder, the thesis needs to be an expression of the author’s analytical critique (or opinion of you prefer) of a literary work, not a factual observation that is self-evident or obvious to readers. Pointing out that the narrator in Edgar Allen Poe’s “The Tell-Tale Heart” is crazy is not a thesis for this is apparent to anyone who reads the story; however, arguing that Poe gives his narrator the qualities associated with schizophrenia to raise awareness of mental illness is a thesis because it represents an argument, an opinion that is not self-evident or apparent to readers. Other questions regarding the thesis include, Is the thesis developed? Is the thesis stated clearly? Every good thesis should be able to be stated in one or two sentences (even those that guide books), but a good thesis must also be developed. Make sure that your thesis is adequately developed for your topic. Example of an under-developed thesis: The narrator of Poe’s “The Tell-Tale Heart” is interesting. The problem with this thesis statement is simply that it needs to offer more information, more detail, or rather, more development.The Supporting Paragraphs: Make sure that your supporting paragraphs contain a topic sentence, textual evidence (quotes), a discussion of the significance of the quotes, and an explanation/discussion/connection of the paragraph’s content to the thesis. Each supporting paragraph should focus on one main point that relates to the author’s main topic (a.k.a. thesis) and provide support for the author’s literary analysis of the work in question. By the time readers finish reading the supporting paragraphs, they should be able to understand the author’s main point more clearly and the reasons that contribute to (or inspire) the author’s main point.The Conclusion: The conclusion should in effect announce the ending of the author’s paper and sum up the main supporting points, perhaps even add something more to them. Readers should not be left with un-answered questions regarding the author’s literary analysis after reading the conclusion, nor should there be any “lose threads” or points of discussion the author initiated but left unfinished. The conclusion should leave the reader with a sense of finality, a sense that the literary analysis is over, that the author has presented a clear case study, and there’s nothing more to say at this point. Note: please do not simply “cut and paste” your thesis into the conclusion and call it good; although it’s okay to remind readers of your main point/thesis, you should not adopt the position that the conclusion is just a repetition of the thesis.REVISING AN ESSAY: GRAMMAR AND MECHANICS When revising your essay, you should not correct all of the grammar problems first, then fix the writing for you will inevitably fix the grammar in a sentence or two, then realize the sentence does not work well and delete it, thus wasting the time you spent correcting the grammar. After the content of the essay has been revised (i.e., the Introduction, Supporting Paragraphs, and Conclusion are all in good shape), then correct any grammar and/or mechanical problems. If you have trouble remembering the rules for commas, for example, please consult your handbook A Writer’s Reference; you may also consult the online resources posted in Canvas, and of course, your instructor always remains a good option for help with grammar and/or mechanics.
