This week we’re going to focus again on revising and editing your prose. We’ll repeat the same exercise as we completed for the last two weeks.
For this week’s post, please write three (3) close reading paragraphs. Just as you did earlier in the term, please pick out three to five key terms to analyze/explain for each paragraph. (Feel free to return to Week 2 if you need a reminder of how to write a close reading paragraph). These paragraphs do not need to relate to one another.
To receive full credit, each paragraph must refer to a different scene in “The Tempest” (i.e. you will not receive credit if you write three paragraphs about the same scene). Part of the aim of this writing post is to show that you’ve read the entire play and that you’re listening to the lectures.
In addition to looking for content, I will grade for writing mechanics with a focus on the following: eliminating passive voice, eliminating run-on sentences, eliminating sentence fragments, and eliminating vague pronoun references. Please take the time to proofread your posts for grammatical errors prior to posting your work.
LENGTH REQUIREMENT: EACH PARAGRAPH MUST CONTAIN AT LEAST 5 SENTENCES OF YOUR PROSE (15 SENTENCES TOTAL + QUOTATIONS FROM THE PLAY). You should aim to write one to two introductory sentences before the quotation and three to four explanatory sentences after the quotation.
