Printing Your Personal Essay

Posted on November 14, 2012. Filed under: IRLA Class | Tags: |

In class today, you will print your final draft of your personal essay.

Before printing your essay, make sure your essay meets the following requirements:

  • You have made all revisions.
  • You have addressed all of the comments left for you by making appropriate revisions to your essay and by clicking  “resolve” for those comments.
  • You have edited your essay for spelling, grammar, punctuation, capitalization, and typing errors.
  • You have reviewed the rubric and understand how your essay will be scored. 
  • Essay has a heading in the top right corner (with your name, class and assignment, date).
  • Essay has a title, centered on the page.  (Not underlined.)
  • Essay is double spaced.

Now, you may print the essay.  Print two copies.  Then make sure that:

  • Essays that are multiple pages are stapled together.  (Don’t staple more than one draft at a time.)
  • One copy must remain clean.  
  • On the second copy, you will:  
    • underline thesis statement (and where it is restated in the conclusion) in blue
    • underline anecdotes in pink
    • underline transitional phrases in red
    • underline examples of casual tone in green
  • Underlined copy will be placed on top of the blank copy.
  • Both copies will be placed on top of all old drafts.
  • All papers will be submitted on the right side of the writing folder.
  • Writing folders will be submitted in the black bins.

Congratulations!  You have officially submitted your personal essay!

With the remaining time left this period, you may work on your portfolio.  Remember tovisit this post for more information about portfolio requirements and resources.
