. Do a self-review of the summary paragraph draft you wrote and submitted to eLearning in Week #2. You’ll be re-submitting that paragraph, but with marginal notes that indicate your evaluation of the paragraph according to the grading criteria in the rubric.
Open the grading rubric and evaluate your summary draft according to the criteria in the “Summary Paragraph” category and in the “Both Summary Paragraph & Application Paragraph” category.
Carefully review the summary and use the “Insert Comment” feature in Word to include your assessment of your paragraph for each criterion.
For instance, your first comment might be about the topic sentence. It could read: “Included TED Talk and speaker’s name; forgot to include year for APA citation. Big picture statement is probably too general.”
Include comments about what meets the requirements and looks good as well as what doesn’t meet the requirements and has room for improvement. A thorough self-review will be very useful to you in the revision process.
