Project 1: Revising Your Explanation

I’m studying for my English class and need an explanation.


Step 1: Revisit the explanation from your chosen paragraph for Essay 1. Write down your explanation just as you had it in your the draft that you submitted.

Step 2: Then, review the requirements for a good explanation here:

  • Remember, an explanation needs to accomplish the following: explains what the information means, connects the point to the piece of information, provides analysis, and shows the significance of the information given.

Step 3: Now that you have thought more about what makes a good explanation, rewrite your explanation.

  • Remember that your explanation should be twice as long as the information.
