One of the most important parts of the writing process is to learn how to take and use critique to build a better papr. Throughout this course, you have learned the skill of critiquing your peers. In the Discussions, you looked at the thesis statements and topic sentences, body paragraphs, introductions, and conclusions through the eyes of a writer-reader. You considered what worked and what didn’t work, and you gave advice on how to improve the flow, transitions, structure, and overall readability of your peers’ writing. Now it’s time to turn that critical eye on your own writing.
Write a reflection about what works and what doesn’t work in your Week 7 papr. What would you change or what did you change in your own writing to improve the flow, transitions, structure, and overall readability of the Week 7 papr?
- Critique each part of your Week 7 papr–the thesis statement and topic sentences, the body paragraphs with its supporting evidence and outside sources, the introductory paragraph and its hook, and the conclusion.
- Add small quotes from your Week 7 papr if it helps you make a point.
- Do not revise the Week 7 papr; instead, you are only considering how to revise. The goal of this assignment is to apply the critique you have learned in the course to your own writing.
