I will edit your first draft by rereading it to see, for example, where the paper is well-organized, the transitions between paragraphs are smooth and if your evidence backs up your argument.

 

I will edit on several levels:

Content

Is all of the information in your paper relevant to the assignment and/or your overall writing goal?

 

Overall structure

Does your paper have an appropriate introduction and conclusion? Is your thesis clearly stated in your introduction? Is it clear how each paragraph in the body of your paper is related to your thesis? Are the paragraphs arranged in a logical sequence? Have you made clear transitions between paragraphs? 

 

Structure within paragraphs

Does each paragraph stick to one main idea? 

 

Clarity

Have you defined any important terms that might be unclear to your reader? Have you chosen the proper words to express your ideas? 

‚Äč

Style

Have you used an appropriate tone? Have you varied the length and structure of your sentences? Do you use the passive voice too often? Do you repeat a strong word unnecessarily? 

 

Citations

Have you appropriately cited quotes, paraphrases, and ideas you got from sources? Are your citations in the correct format?
