Ex 2b: Peer Profile (Revision)

Revise Ex 2a based on what you learned on Wednesday.

Include your rough draft.

On top of it, staple your revised copy, and highlight all editing changes in one color, and revisions in another color. (See handout, "Revision vs. Editing.")

On top, staple a one-page submission note, in which you summarize the most important changes you made, quote the "before" and "after" of the change that you feel improves your paper the best (with an explanation), and identify what you would have done next if you'd had more time.

Note: I am asking you to highlight your revised copy, not your rough draft.
