One learning objective for ENG 122 is “Demonstrate some ability to approach writing as a recursive process that requires substantial revision of drafts for content, organization, and clarity (global revision), as well as editing and proofreading (local revision).” For all of our writing pieces this semester we had to write drafts and edit them, locally and globally, to make for a final draft to be published. For global revisions we had guidelines with questions and prompts to expand on global revisions. Locally we used the little seagull book to do revisions such as adding signal phrases. I also used the They Say I Say book to help paraphrase and quote passages. For my literacy narrative I made lots of revisions. I cut out a lot of runon sentences and made the structure flow better. One specific example is I started one paragraph with “I cannot recall a time in elementary school when I read a book, either independently or as a class. What I can remember is that if we were assigned a book, I probably didn’t read it. Not reading goes all the way until the summer before 9th grade. Our summer reading book was “”The Absolutely True Diary of a Part Time Indian” by Sherman Alexie.” In my final draft I edited it to say “Not reading goes all the way until the summer before 9th grade. Our summer reading book was “”The Absolutely True Diary of a Part Time Indian” by Sherman Alexie.” It was more to the point and clear for readers in the final draft.
