Explain why each of the three marked revisions to the structure, content, and organization of the text were made.

All good writers revise and edit. Whether it is a document that will be widely read or for personal use, revision is an essential part of the writing process. The process of revising and editing involves more than using a spellchecker; it involves looking closely for opportunities to improve clarity, professionalism, and style.

The revision process involves seeking out opportunities for feedback. However, receiving ineffective feedback makes it difficult for writers to improve their writing, whether that feedback is too harsh, too vague, too overwhelming, etc. The goal of this assessment is to show how being purposeful in giving and receiving constructive feedback will greatly improve your overall writing skills.

In this task, you will make edits and suggest revisions for a piece of unedited, unrevised work. You will submit a marked-up copy of your chosen text along with a written response that provides feedback.
Select one of the following attached sample texts to revise and edit, and then submit the text with clearly designated markups of three revisions and five edits:
• “Sample Text 1”
• “Sample Text 2”
• “Sample Text 3”
• “Sample Text 4”

Note: The writing quality and similarity report matches of the original, unedited document will not be evaluated.

Note: You can revise and edit the document by hand or by using an editing function on a word-processing document (e.g., Track Changes in Microsoft Word). The written responses to parts B, C, and D should not be written by hand.

B. Discuss the changes you made to the text in part A by doing the following:
1. Explain why each of the three marked revisions to the structure, content, and organization of the text were made.
2. Explain why each of the five marked edits to the grammar, punctuation, and word choice of the text were made.

C. Provide feedback to the writer of your chosen text by doing the following:
• Explain why the introduction is successful or unsuccessful at capturing your attention.
• Describe the greatest strength of the text.
• Describe the weakest part of the text.
• Explain whether the conclusion is successful or unsuccessful at bringing the text to a close.

D. Acknowledge sources, using in-text citations and references, for content that is quoted, paraphrased, or summarized.

E. Demonstrate professional communication in the content and presentation of your submission.
