GUIDELINES FOR REVISING PAPERS Deadline for Portfolio: Monday December 7, 2015 All revised papers must include a Writer’s Memo!!!! 1. Revisions should address not only my corrections and endnotes, but should reflect contemplation and insight on behalf of the student. If you only change what I tell you without thinking about it yourself, you will likely receive the same grade. 2. Revisions should take into account both Global and Local revisions. If you’re unclear on the difference, email me. 3. As stated above, all revised papers must include a Writer’s Memo. A Writer’s Memo is a one page summary of the changes you made to the revised paper. In the writer’s memo, you need to not only list the major changes you made but also discuss your process. As in, how did you think about the assignment differently? What was wrong with the first draft and how did you fix it? How did you take my suggestions to create a revised paper? Take it seriously! 4. The original draft is NOT required. That’s what the memo is for. SAMPLE WRITER’S MEMO Student Name Prof. St. John English 1101 Date Writer’s Memo for [Title of Paper] The first time I wrote this paper, I wasn’t quite sure what I wanted to write about. It took me a while to decide on a topic, so I didn’t have much time to spend developing my argument. When I received my grade Professor St. John had problems with my thesis statement and my organization, as well as my grammar in points. So when I set out to revise this paper, I focused my attention on those areas. First, I focused on some large global revisions my paper needed. I strengthened my thesis statement by making it clear exactly what I was talking about. On page 2, I added the sentence “The point of the thesis is to outline the rest of the paper by showing the reader exactly what points are going to be discussed later.” After that, I made sure each of my paragraphs followed the thesis, and that they flowed well. I added transitions to the paragraphs on pages 3-4. After that, I tried to correct a recurring problem in my sentence structure. Professor St. John pointed out a lot of run-on sentences, so I went through my draft making sure I corrected these. Overall, I think this draft is an improvement over my first draft because of its revised thesis statement, rearranged organization, and corrected local revisions.
