Mentor Text Activity

Using “mentor texts” (student sample essays or the four op-Ed articles we read about television), think about the kinds of moves these writers made. Then, come up with two things you can change in your draft for improvement. For example, did reading the sample essays and reviewing the four articles make you realize your opening sentence (hook) needed to be a bit more engaging? Did reading the student samples make you realize you needed to integrate more direct quotes in your body paragraphs? In a Word document, 1) explain which two things you’re changing, 2) why you’re changing them, and 3) include the before and after examples from your Rhetorical Analysis Essay. This week is all about reflection and making changes to your writing based on feedback from your instructor, student samples, and discussion with your peers.
