1. Read each paper aloud: reader is correcting as they go, audience is listening for places they like and places that are confusing.

  • Give feedback: 1-2 places to improve; 1-2 places to keep

2. Pass papers to the left and do the following:

  • Read title – are you intrigued?
  • Check format – is it correct?
  • Read through for vocab – circle vague lang (things, stuff, many, very, every, always, etc)
  • Answer the question – do I believe this, why/why not?

3. Pass paper again and apply the framework to it – hold it to the standard that you would a piece assigned to read. Discuss with table exigency and purpose – can you distinguish between the two for each piece? Why or why not? Does it read like there is an intended audience, or is it “student-ese” writing?

4. Pass back to writer and do the following:

  • Circle the first word of each sentence. Do you need to vary your starts? Do you need to play with sentence length?
  • Read through for conciseness – can you condense phrases and ideas into 1-2 words instead?
  • Revise and share with mhsbrock@gmail.com by 11:59 p.m. on Thursday September 18, 2014.
