I will award the points for this activity after I check your draft and ensure that it meets the basic requirements listed above. Note that your draft needs to be complete to earn the points for this activity.
If I have a question or concern about your draft, I will add a comment to the draft and ask you to revise. Check the help link in the #TuesdayTutorial: Resources on How to Use Canvas DIscussion for information on how to read comments on your work.
I will not provide individualized editing or revision feedback on all drafts. Instead I will provide collective feedback to the class that goes over the issues that I see in the drafts all members of the course submit. I may use excerpts from your draft to provide collective feedback to the class, based on the Anonymous Use of Student Texts policy.
