Revision memo–which I will discuss in class.

28 Oct

Before you actually revise, take a few minutes to make a plan, using these guidelines.

Revision memo

What are the global things you are going to work on?

What are the specific mechanical things, if any, you are going to work on?

What, concretely, are you going to do in your revision? A “to-do” list might be appropriate. For instance, “connect citations to contexts with introductions in discussion of the Meiji emperor,” or “expand discussion of Fukuoka to include his ideas about systems.”

Then when you turn in the revision, turn both old and new versions of the paper.  With the “revision memo.”
