In your online text, go to An Overview of the Writing Process.  In that section, read the information about Writing a Thesis, Paragraphs, and Organizing.

In this module I’ll be looking for two important aspects of your writing:  ORGANIZATION OF IDEAS AND DEVELOPMENT OF IDEAS

After prewriting, (Module 1) you’ll want to develop an initial draft that starts the writing. With this draft, you just want to aim to get some ideas down, and use specific details and examples (Module 2).  Now you need to focus on  organizing your thoughts on paper.  This is a time for developing your thinking. 

Once you develop this draft, take some time to reflect about the organization of your ideas by asking the following questions: how logical is my writing? are there any gaps in the development of ideas? is there repetition? does the paper flow easily?

Go to your online textbook and read the material assigned.  (See separate page below).

In your online text, go to An Overview of the Writing Process.  In that section, read the information about Thesis Statements, Organizing an Essay and Creating Paragraphs.

 

For this paper, I’ll be looking at these three things when I assign a grade–along with the other criteria I’ve mentioned before–e.g., using specific details and developing interesting content, and having a “point” to your writing.
