Read Joseph Harris’s chapter on revision from the book Re-Writing (2006). Consider the advice he gives and try to synthesize some of the most important points in a well-constructed annotation. Remember that, for the purposes of this course, an annotation has three parts:
- A formal citation in MLA or APA
- One paragraph that effectively and thoroughly summarizes the main arguments/ideas
- One paragraph that considers the credibility of the author as well as the usefulness of the argument. For this reading, you should consider which pieces of advice from this chapter are most relevant for your own writing process. Try to answer how this chapter might help you rethink your revision strategies for your upcoming final draft.
