English 1B: Introduction to Literature Spring 2017

Revising Guidelines

The purpose of English 1B is to help me develop my writing, reading, and researching skills. As such, I have an opportunity to revise all of my essays—that I have submitted—for an improved grade. Revising is not just fixing spelling errors, capitalization errors, or even MLA errors. Revising is the opportunity to make my ideas stronger and clearer. I can revise my essay several times before I submit it for a new grade consideration. In order to be able to revise my work I must make sure to have submitted the work by the original due date and time.

Revising is not about writing a new essay, revising is about improving on what I originally submitted.

In order for me to be able to resubmit my essay for an improved grade I must do the following:




  1. Get help!

-The writing center provides free assistance to students at the Compton Center. When I meet with a Writing Center tutor I must make sure to take my essay prompt with me, so that the tutor can help me with my response to the essay question.

-I understand that the tutor will not give me ideas for my essay, but will help me clarify my own ideas

-It might also be a good idea to take a CLEAN copy of my original draft to the Writing Center so that the tutor can review the work I submitted


  1. Revise

-Based on the feedback I will receive I must now decide what changes to make to the work.

-I must decide which ideas to elaborate on, and maybe which ideas to remove

-It might be necessary to revisit the Writing Center and have my revised essay reviewed before submitting.


  1. Resubmit

-When I am satisfied with the revising that has been done I am free to submit my essay to Ms. Juarez at any time during the semester.

-I should not attempt to revise all my essay during the final two weeks of the semester



-I should revise as the essays are returned to me so that I can resubmit in a timely manner
Resubmission protocol: When I am ready to resubmit I must include the following in my resubmission packet—

  1. A copy of the “Compton Center Writing Center Tutorial Form”

  2. The final draft of my essay

ALL REVISIONS ARE DUE BY Thursday, June 8, 2017
Lastly, revising is about improving the quality of the work that I have already submitted. When I submit my revised work to Ms. Juarez, and indeed the work has improved, I know that she will make the grade change in the grade book to reflect my improved score. While it does not happen often, should I actually do worse on the revised essay Ms. Juarez will never assign me the worse grade.
