Tunxis CC – Reflection v. Revision: Rethinking rather than rewriting an essay

In this practice, I replaced the use of multiple drafts of each paper in my Composition and Composition II classes with student reflections on what they would do to revise each paper. At the end of the semester, students use these reflections to revise all their papers for the final portfolio which is submitted for assessment. The goal and effect has been to shift students’ attention away from correction and quick fixes to my comments, to a more global revision of their work.
