Historical Fiction Rewrites are due Monday

Please remember the guidelines for the rewrite:

  1. Only students who received an 85% or lower are permitted to do the rewrite.
  2. Content must be altered based on the comments received.  If you only correct the research and the grammar, you will lose points on the rewrite.  You must keep in mind all of the recommendations in order to earn more points.
  3. You old grade will be averaged with your new grade.
  4. Your old essay must be stapled to the new essay.
  5. You must include a paragraph reflecting on your process in this rewrite.  What did you do wrong the first time and what did you change to write the new and improved essay?
