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:
Is all of the information in your paper relevant to the assignment and/or your overall writing goal?
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?
Have you defined any important terms that might be unclear to your reader? Have you chosen the proper words to express your ideas?
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?
Have you appropriately cited quotes, paraphrases, and ideas you got from sources? Are your citations in the correct format?
