Today you will be editing each other’s character assignments. As this is our first class edit session, I thought I’d put some guidelines of things you can look for as you edit. Feel free to mark up the pages, writing in, under and over anything you like. Essentially pretend you’re me but without the beard, baldness and dangerously high cholesterol.
Things to consider:
- A mix of characterization techniques
- Challenging vocabulary/Interesting style
- A clear sense of purpose
- Clarity of phrasing
- Inconsistency in the character
- Potential additions/deletions/alterations
- Formatting/Obvious typos
This is not a restrictive list. If anything pops out, write it down.
Make sure you write EDITED BY and YOUR NAME on the top of the page.
