Revisions:

Once you have received your graded paper, you should review my annotations. If you wish, you may revise the draft, and earn more points. In order to do so, you must add, delete, or edit where needed those sections you want to improve (and receive additional points). In other words, simply editing the assignment for grammatical errors will only improve your points for that area of the grading criteria.

Print your revisions and label them as: Revision: Assignment #____. Submit the revisions to me in class. (Do not submit your revisions to Turnitin.com). I will assess your revisions and award points based on the quality of your improvements on the original draft.
