Exercise 5

(Due on Friday, February 4th) Look at the drafts of E.B. White's "Moonwalk" and note the different types of revision practices he used. Describe what you see as effective and then ineffective changes here. Then give a definition of "revision." Discuss how overall successful E.B. White's revisions were here. After thoroughly scrutinizing E.B. White's process, explain how this relates to you as you begin to revise your writings in this class, specifically your summaries. This assignment should be at least one processed page, double spaced if you are to answer each question above thoroughly, using examples from the text.
