Revise your paper

Make all revisions on a new copy of your Google Doc file; keep the original draft with your peer’s comments intact.

Make multiple global changes to your paper that improve it’s meaning.


  • Improve your summaries of other writers’ ideas about what college is for and what they should study. Make them more fair and accurate, more useful to readers who haven’t read the original.
  • Improve your quotations: Improve the entrances to quotations by improving the context given to lead readers into the quotation and the signal phrases that indicate that another writer is “speaking.” Improve the examples and explanations you use to frame the quotations.
  • Add a new paragraph of at least 150 words challenging or questioning the view of one of the writers’ we’ve read so far.
  • Ensure that all quoted and paraphrased passages have an appropriate parenthetical citation.
  • Improve MLA manuscript formatting: check line spacing, name block, and Works Cited page.

Submit your paper by both sharing the new google doc version with me and posting it on your ePortfolio with the categories ENG 122 and Papers selected. Copy-and-paste your paper into the new post. Please do not post a link to your Google Doc, a pdf, or any other kind of file.
