Revise My Project

Now that you are done with your first draft, it is time to revise it.

Big Picture

    • Review the assignment page again. Did you cover everything? 
    • Did you answer your essential and focus questions?
    • Did you use evidence from your research to support your ideas?
    • Reread your work to be sure it makes sense.
    • Is the information well organized?
    • Does it communicate to your audience what you learned or information they need to know?


    • Are your main ideas clear?
    • Do your paragraphs begin with a topic sentence? 
    • Did you repeat words too often?
    • Did you use complete sentences?
    • Check your spelling and grammar. 
    • Does it need a title page?
    • Did you correctly cite your sources?
    • Have questions? Ask your teacher.

Review Again

    • Try reading it out loud, performing it, or watching what you produced to be sure it sounds right.
    • Show it to a friend or relative to review. 
    • And/or, use a rubric or scoring guide to rate your work.
