Note on Draft 2 Revisions:
The essay you upload here should be a revision of your first draft based on feedback you received from me during one-on-one meetings.
Note: a second draft should be an improved revision of your first draft (not the exact same essay reuploaded)
For those who didn’t have a feedback meeting with me:
If you only produced a single draft, do not upload it here – upload that to the first draft assignment tool (in Week 12 > Homework & Assessments).
If you were unable to receive feedback from me because you were very late with your first draft, you can still create a second draft by making revisions based on written feedback acquired elsewhere, such as any of the writing centers on campus or even a classmate.
In that case, upload the first draft to the first draft assignment tool in Week 12, and, here, upload your revision along with the feedback you received, so I can better understand the differences between Draft 1 and Draft 2.
Two upload attempts are allowed for this assignment so that students who make a mistake and upload the wrong document can reupload the right one (this happens more often than you think).
All essays will automatically be run through Blackboard’s SafeAssign plagiarism checker.
