WRITING ACTIVITY 4  

Final Draft Due Week 9 and worth 300 points 

Instructions: Your final draft should reflect the work you have done to develop your ideas, identify counter perspectives, gather credible research, and draft your essay. You will use feedback from your instructor to review, revise, and edit your draft to ensure that you submit your best work. 

To ensure your final draft is different from your rough draft, follow the steps below. 

Step 1 Revision Using your instructor’s feedback as a guide, remove content that does not support your points, and add content where you need more support or where your rough draft was incomplete. Refine all of your content to improve clarity, idea development, flow, and the overall persuasiveness of your communication. Chapters 8 and 9 of your Webtext will provide guidance to help ensure you submit your best work.

Step 2 Editing After you finish your content, review your paper to make sure your sentences are clear and error free. Pay attention to grammar, mechanics, punctuation, and formatting. You do not want to distract your audience or negatively impact your credibility with small mistakes. Chapter 9 will provide you with guidance to help you avoid these mistakes.  

Section 3 Feedback Reflection Remember to include your feedback reflection after the reference  page. Follow the steps below:  1. List the feedback you received on writing activity three 2. Explain how you used feedback from writing activity three to write activity four 3. Discuss how the feedback on writing activity three will help you with future writing. 

FEEDBACK

Some suggestions: 

Paragraph 3 (There is a lot to learn …) is repeated twice. I found the same info in paragraph 2 too. Please avoid repetition. 

You have provided a lot of reasons why taking a gap year after high school is useful. What your paper needs is evidence in the form of data. Please research to find statistics on this. If there are any human interest anecdotes of someone who has taken a gap year, please include that too.

You have included a counter perspective to your stand. You also need to offer a rebuttal to the counter argument thereby reinforcing your claim. 

Provide a title that is specific and reflective of your stand. 

Revise the paper to provide smooth transitions between ideas/paragraphs.  

Double check citations.
