What strategies do you use for revising a paper?
How do you know when to accept feedback from another source? what makes feedback valuable to you?
I see the word YOU three times in these three sentences.
It appears that your teacher wants to know YOUR experiences and ideas. S/he doesn't give a hoot about my answers.
By paper, do you mean essay? If so, then I would say when I revise a paper, I read it four (minimum) times through. The first time, I read it for style, and word choice. I see if I can make any points more clear, add more detail, or use better vocabulary. The second time, I check for spelling and grammar. The third time I check again for spelling and grammar. And then the fourth time I read it over again with no goal in mind, to make sure that it flows well and that I'm pleased with the final product.
Great ideas, Narasaq! I wish more students followed your suggestions.
