Prompt #1: The Magic of Revision
For this week’s discussion, first view the video below of Obert Skye’s Ted Talk.
Skye talks specifically about the importance of revision in the writing process, but much of what he talks about can be applied to academic work in general. If you were ranking the points he makes in this video, what would you say is the most important or most applicable to your own personal revision process?
Do a bit of independent research and present a couple of revision tips to your peers (these don’t need to focus on writing, of course, but the entirety of academic work). Be sure whatever source you use passes the CRAAP Test and is properly cited in your discussion post!
Include the following items in your initial post:
The most important point (or quote) you selected from Obert Skye’s Ted Talk
An explanation of how that quote relates to your revision work this week
An explanation of why revision is significant and the role it plays in your academic work
Tools you will use in revising your work to submit for the Comprehensive Project this week
Tips to share with your peers related to revising academic work
An APA citation for the source from which you retrieved your tips related to revising academic work
Remember to provide citation(s) in APA format for external sources you use to write your post(s)!
