Post-draft Outline

posted: 12.4.06 by Barclay Barrios

Have students review the section of the handbook on outlines. For the next peer review day, have students bring in a “post-draft outline,” composed of a single sentence that summarizes each paragraph of the paper. In peer groups, have each peer commenter do the same post-draft outline. The author of the paper should then compare his or her own understanding of what each paragraph does with that of her or his peers. Use these collected post-draft outlines to work on organization in revision.
