Putting it all Together


It is time to put all the parts of the essay together. Before you submit it in one MSWord document, please revise and edit it carefully; simply putting the pieces together without significant revising and editing will not gain you many points.

· Revise your introductory paragraph with your hook, 2-3 sentences of supporting details and/or evidence, and thesis statement.

· Revise all  three of your body paragraphs. Make sure you are putting your best arguments forward.

· Do not use direct quotes. We are focusing on  paraphrasing ideas from outside sources in this class.

· Revise your conclusion.

· Revise the whole essay using ARMS (add, remove, move, substitute).

· Edit the whole essay using CUPS (capitalization, usage, punctuation, spelling).

· Put all the parts together in one clean document by 11:59 PM EST Sunday, Week 7. For a sample paper, check out the  .
