Rough Draft Self-Review
This organizer is meant to not only guide how you will revise your rough draft but also to draw your attention to the way that you plan and execute your writing. By identifying issues that are within your control during your writing process, you can prevent those problems from recurring again.
Turn in your self-reflection by Thursday, October, 8th.
Final draft is due Monday, October 12th.
DIRECTIONS: Read each section of the self-reflection. If the section asks you to highlight or underline specific items in your rough draft, then do so on your rough draft. Answer all questions honestly and plan effectively to address problems in your writing.
Highlight your thesis statement. Then, underline the elements of literature in your thesis statement.
Highlight your claim(s) in the same color. Draw an arrow that starts from your topic sentence(s) and points to your thesis statement. How does your thesis statement address the main idea of the claim(s)?
Stage 1: Pre-Writing
How did you independently complete the pre-writing graphic organizer to brainstorm your main ideas and supporting details for your topic? What was your thought process?
Stage 2: Drafting
Explain how you transferred the information from your outline and wrote the rough draft for your rough draft. (Did you copy it word-for-word, revise and re-word sentences as you drafted, asked a friend / faculty member for help, etc.?)
