Revision Memos

0 0 186
Have students review the section of the handbook on memos. After handing back drafts with your comments, have students come to the next class with a memo to you that summarizes your comments on their drafts and proposes a plan of revision. Not only will students get practice with practical forms of writing, but you’ll also be able to make sure that they understand what you’re asking them to do in your comments.
