Revising, or re-seeing your work, provides the space to reconsider all of the basic goals that make writing such a useful tool for engaging meaningfully with other people. The writers of the CEL explain on p. 19 that revision “is about reapproaching ideas.” Even though it may seem counter-productive to “rethink everything,” a key to being successful as a writer is knowing how to step away from your writing, go back to it later, reconsider the basic question of what you are trying to do, and then look for ways to make your approach better, more clear, and more effective for an audience.
Revision requires you to do more than edit your sentences and grammar. When revising, you should ask, what did you start out wanting to write about? What have you learned along the way? What central ideas and insights have you wanted to share with audiences? What challenges and differences in opinion have emerged along the way? Be prepared to make both big and small changes to the drafts that you have already written.
As you work on revising for this activity, remember that you are not simply writing a final project for your 1320 course. You are also creating something — an actual text — that communicates your credibility as a writer and has an impact on audiences.
Write a short response (at least 200 words) in which you address basic questions about the goals, structure, and strategies of your writing for the Unit 3 assignment. For this response, use the questions from the “Reflection” section at the end of one of the following CEL chapters to develop your answers:
Choose one of these sets of questions and address them in 1-2 detailed, coherent paragraphs. You do not have to answer each question word for word in a separate paragraph, but your response overall should show that you are considering all of the questions above. Submit your response to this assignment.
