1. Finish the rough draft of the Letter to your Representative (make sure to turn this in on Canvas for the 12/13 assignment).
2. Check your letter through both Grammarly and Hemingway.
3. Add the following highlights and comments:
- Highlight one area that you feel is the most effective in your letter. Comment with what specifically is effective and going well.
- Highlight and comment on two areas that you need to improve. List some ways to improve this.
4. Find two other people to give you feedback on your letter.
Leave comments and suggestions on the following:
- What's working?
- What's confusing?
- What do you need to see more of to be convinced of their claim?
- For each paragraph, leave a comment paraphrasing (in your own words) what the letter is saying and comment on how credible the sources used are.
5. Implement your feedback and double-check that you have correctly used the following:
- Claim: should be in the first paragraph, should be specific, should show research and should tell what you want your representative do about this issue.
- Format your sources correctly.
- Example: According to [Source], "..."
- [Name] states in "Article Title" that, "..."
- Call to Action: What do you want your representative to do about this? What specific actions do you expect from them?
