Revision of First publish
The Revised publish of Essay 2 includes the same prompts listed for the Essay 2 First publish. However, the revised publish should reflect changes to the First publish that hopefully improve it. You are to turn in your A-13 Essay 2 Reflection Assignment at the same time that you turn in your Revised publish so that I can review the feedback you received from peers and your responses to their feedback.
The essay word count is a minimum of 850 and a maximum of 1000 words.
The essay should be double-spaced
The essay should be submitted as a Word or PDF document.
The essay is a revision of your First publish, not an entirely new paper.
The essay must reference at least one reading selection assigned in class for this essay.
The connection between your essay and the selected reading must be made clear.
The essay should be turned in on time unless otherwise arranged with me.
From the assigned readings and videos found in Module 4, create a topic that allows you to explore an issue or situation brought up in one or more of the selections using your own experiences, observations, or first-hand knowledge as an example. There should be a clear connection between the example and the video or the essay you’ve chosen. Note: “Street Calculus” can only be used in conjunction with another reading or video selection, not by itself. Proposed Topic Requirements: Briefly describe your topic idea by answering the following questions (You may answer each question either with bullet points or in a 50-100-word paragraph) Briefly explain or describe what example you will use from your own experience, observation, or firsthand experience in your essay? What reading or video selection will you reference in your video? How does your example relate to the video or reading selection you’ve chosen? Outline Requirements: The Outline can be formal or informal as described in the prewriting video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dQBHco7veM8). Whatever works best for you. I don’t evaluate Outlines. Informal (Topic Outlines, Bulleted Outlines) (https://www.hunter.cuny.edu/rwc/handouts/the-writing-process-1/organization/Developing-an-Informal-Outline%20) Formal (Alphanumeric, Sentence Outlines) (https://owl.purdue.edu/owl/general_writing/the_writing_process/developing_an_outline/documents/20081113013048_544.pdf) All Outlines must include The central point or idea you are trying to convey to your reader (similar to a thesis statement) What do you think people who read your paper will learn by reading your essay? Or What message are you trying to convey to your audience in the essay? The main points you will use to develop your essay to support your central idea or point (minimum of 3)
