that your work will be evaluated based on the effort and changes you make with your finished product. All students (even those who have previously submitted the essay for evaluation in the fall) should be making substantial changes. Only those few (three) students who earned a 30 or above on the first essay are exempt from making substantial changes to their work. Please don’t think that sticking with the same (difficult) prompt exempts you from needing revisions to your initial draft. Your grade will be determined with these two things in mind:
- the quality of peer editing you seek out
- and the quality of the changes you have made based on that feedback.
Finished products are due prior to your departure on break [even if you leave early or unexpectedly]. We will upload essays on February 14th.
