Transcript of English 201 Module 6 Instructor Notes

One of the hardest things about drafting your essay is going to be just getting yourself started. You have completed your outline and drafted your introduction. Use that to help you get going! Here are some other tips:

1. Remember, this is just your rough draft. The key is to just get your ideas down.

2. In this module, you will be getting feedback from peers and Smarthinking. That should take off some of the pressure.

3. Write in small bits if you have to. Your outline will help keep you focused if you need to start and stop and start again.

4. And, try to have some fun! You have researched this topic so much that you are becoming an expert. Your essay is going to be your opportunity to share your work with an audience.
Obstacle 1: The
Mental Obstacle
Obstacle 2: Making Decisions about Feedback
Obstacle 3: The Deadline
This week, you are going to have to
draft your full essay. Pretend the character below is you. You are going to have some obstacles to overcome in order to draft your essay, but with determination and patience, you will be successful!
You will be getting a lot of feedback once you complete your
rough draft. You will have feedback from your peers and a Smarthinking tutor. It can be tough to make decisions about changes to make. Here are some tips to keep in mind:

1. Think first about the "bigger picture" issues to address in your feedback like thesis and support.

2. Think second about things related to editing. You will want to make the bigger changes first.

3. Remember, feedback is your friend. Be open to it! It will help make your writing better.

4. Finally, remember, this is your essay. You will have feedback suggestions, but you get to decide what you use and what you don't use! You will want to be open to feedback, but you shouldn't accept all feedback without careful consideration.
Facing Deadlines
When you reach your goal of having a strong research essay, you will feel proud of yourself as a writer!

It can be tough to decide what to do with all that feedback!
