Revising the Paper

After writing the first draft of your paper, you should consult your teacher for revision suggestions. In addition, consider asking a fellow student to peer edit your paper. Ask yourself the following questions:

  1. Have I provided at least three factual arguments to support my thesis statement?
  2. Are the factual arguments arranged in logical order?
  3. Do the details of the paragraph support the topic sentence?
  4. Does my conclusion show how the evidence supports my thesis statement?
  5. Have I proofread the paper for misspelled or omitted words and grammatical errors?
