Please post any questions or observations you have about the three stages--Structural Revision, Line Editing, Proofreading--of the Revision Process on our OpenLab site.
BELOW IS AN OPTIONAL ASSIGNMENT FOR THOSE INTERESTED IN MOVING AHEAD WITH THINKING ABOUT COMPLETE SENTENCESFirst, please read Professor Rodgers' booklet "Understanding and Repairing Errors in SWE" and "Understanding Complete Sentences in SWE." After reading both, line editing your essay, and reflecting on all of the many and diverse things you have ever been told about complete sentences and SWE usage, please write down any specific questions you have about the mechanics of Standard Written English (SWE). From this list, select three questions and post them to the course OpenLab site. For instance, “what is a run-on?” “What is the difference between a period and a comma?” “What is wrong with this sentence: ‘The is dog cat eating the.'” “If it is possible to start a SWE sentence with the word ‘Because,’ why did my high school English teacher tell me NEVER to do that?” “What is a sentence fragment, and how can I revise these in my writing?” Be creative! Ask anything and everything you’ve ever wanted to know about SWE sentences, and their functions/malfunctions.
