Research and Revision
The ability to simplify means to eliminate the unnecessary so that the necessary may speak. -Hans Hofmann, painter (1880-1966)
Each week there are two prompts required to complete the initial Post: a reflection of the process and a progress report. Write a full paragraph (5-7 sentences) responding to each of the pprompts, and then respond to one of your peers.
Reflect: This week we begin the revision process. Revising is a multi-step process. The word REVISE, literally means to REVISION or see in a different light. What is your revision process? How has it grown or changed during your studies? Share your best practices and tips for revising and improving your papers.
Progress: This week we also focus on research. Share a brief overview of your research methods. What are the biggest challenges you faced finding sources? What search terms (key words) did you use? Share a statement about your proficiency in the following areas: Navigating library databases, integrating sources into your essay, APA format and citations.
Respond: Comment on a peer’s post, specifically note similarities or differences in your processes of research and revision
