Revising your paper

Hey, how 'bout them Dawgs!!!!!!
  1. Open your original. 
  2. On the File menu choose Make a copy... That will make a copy. 
  3. Give the new version the same title and add "Revision" to the end. 
  4. Close the original and edit the new one. 
Remember, go for substantive revisions. Last minute changes of syntax, diction, and punctuation will not garner a better grade, unless of course I noted that the preponderance of errors was so distracting it engendered the low grade in the first place.*

Remember the rewrites are due before we get back.

Best of luck and Happy New Year!

*I hope you all remembered to study your vocab a bit.
