Poetry Analysis – Final Draft
By the due date assigned, submit your revised analytical essay on poetry as a Microsoft Word document.
Consider the feedback you received on the Week 1 rough draft from your instructor, peers, and Smarthinking (if your paper was submitted for review), and determine what changes you want to make. Consider:
Do you need a more engaging opener or a stronger thesis?
Do you need to reinforce your arguments and add more supporting evidence?
Do you have areas to develop or clarify?
Are you satisfied with your conclusion?
Once you have revised the essay, review it for editing issues. Run the spell checker and grammar checker in Word, and then proofread, looking for typos the checkers might have missed. Read it aloud to listen for awkward places and to fine tune the flow. Make sure you have applied APA rules of style to source citations as well as the overall formatting of your essay.
