Student says:

My revision process is going to involve considering the comments my professor made on my essay, which you can see here. I will also think about additional changes I would like to make after thinking on the essay myself. And I will consider my feedback from my peer review.

For my revision, I will be sure to address the content suggestions my professor has made here. For example, she has suggested expanding on some ideas and providing better transitions.

Once I finish revision, I will edit my essay. I will run my spelling checker and grammar checker, but I will also use some of the suggestions for effective editing from the Online Writing Lab. I will want to be sure that my essay is, first, revised and, then, edited so that I submit a polished essay to my professor when I am finished.
