AP Language and Composition: Semester 2 Editing and Revision Project Throughout semester 2, you will be responsible for writing at least 4 timed-essays. For each timed-essay, you will have a new, specific editing and revising task; you will complete each task only once.
Task 1: Blind Peer Review: multiple peers write comments and critiques on Xeroxed copies of your essay; I will copy your essays; you just need to show up.
Task 2: The Gauntlet: using “The Gauntlet” handout, you will self-edit and revise your essay; you will do this during class while other members in your class are peer editing.
Task 3: Teacher Workshop: one-on-one (or in small groups in larger classes), your teacher will conduct a mini-writing workshop with you in order to revise and edit your essay; this will happen during peer editing during class time.
Task 4: Read Aloud: in front of the class, you will read your essay aloud; class members will provide comments and critiques on comment sheets; this is the only editing/revising round during which you will be able to re-work your essay before receiving comments and critiques. If you are absent the day you are assigned this task, you will be required to read your essay aloud the next period-there’s no getting out of this one.
