Essay #1: The Hermeneutic (Revision)
If you have a revision for Essay #1, you should submit it here following these guidelines:
Pick at least one paragraph from your essay and revise it to make it “perfect”
This may include grammar issues, but simply fixing grammar mistakes is not revision; that’s editing
To effectively revise your essay, start with the word “revise.” To revise is to “see again,” to revisit, to re-visualize, to re-imagine your essay (or paragraph, in this case). Revising may mean completely restructuring your essay/paragraph, adding whole chunks of analysis, or even removing troublesome passages that perhaps were off-topic or irrelevant.
In addition, add a paragraph (250 words) reflection explaining what you changed, why you changed it, and how you will avoid the same sorts of pitfalls in the future. In other words, what skills or strategies have you developed as a result of completing your revision?
The revision is due before the semester ends; however, the sooner you finish it, the sooner you can apply your enhanced skill set to future writing assignments. Good luck!
