Initial Post Instructions

Main Post Part 1: Share Your Revision Plan
You have now received feedback from your instructor and from your peers, and you have already been applying revision strategies to your draft in the past week.

This week, you will perform final, guided revisions in six levels: global, section, paragraph, sentence, word, and final proofreading. After you have read and studied the lesson and the assigned textbook readings for the week, you will make a plan for addressing these levels of revision.

In one full paragraph, please share how you are approaching revisions now and how you will continue to do so before submitting your final draft. In this paragraph, answer the following questions:

  • Which days and time slots on your calendar this week have you set aside to fully address each of the six distinct levels of revision as addressed in the lesson? Be very specific.
  • Why did you choose these days and time slots? Be very specific.
  • By now, you should have begun working through the stages of revision. Which stage are you in? Please share how you approached the stage(s) you have worked through. What insights have you gained? What changes have you made? Be very specific.

Main Post Part 2: Share Your Rewards Plan
We understand the importance of self-care and of rewarding ourselves for our good efforts. “Revision Week” can be stressful because revision takes hard mental work and time and because you may also be very busy in other classes or with other endeavors. Review the portion of the lesson that suggests ideas for rewarding yourself during your revision stages in order to stay refreshed and motivated.

In one full paragraph, please carefully describe at least three of your unique post-revision level rewards for this week.

  • What are the rewards?
  • Where do they occur?
  • What will they look like?
  • Who will be there?
  • How will each reward refresh you?

Be very specific and descriptive; let your classmates truly “see” the creative and rejuvenating choices you are making!

Follow-Up Post Instructions
Respond to at least two peers or one peer and the instructor. Here, in reading others’ posts and replying to them, you will learn a great deal more about approaches to applying levels to revision and to avoiding burn-out through creating incentives. In your follow-up posts, please share your thoughts on your classmates’ approaches to specific revision levels and note similarities and differences between your classmates’ approaches and your own. In addition, share your thoughts on your classmates’ ideas for self-reward, also noting similarities and differences between your classmates’ self-reward ideas and your own.
