Rewriting the test is optional. If you wish to do so, your rewrite is due Feb. 24 in class. Late rewrites will not be accepted. I will give you the average between your grade on the rewrite and your original grade. Please type your rewrite, print it out, and hand it in at the beginning of class along with the graded version of your original test.
It is not sufficient on a rewrite to simply change a
sentences where the person who graded your test made comments.
must substantially revise your essay to do a better job of answering
question, organizing your argument, and using specific examples.
You may want to go talk to the person who graded your test during their
office hours (or email for an appointment at another time) to get more
help on rewriting. We
expect a slightly higher standard of writing and particularly of
organization on a rewrite where you are not so limited by time.
If your grade on the rewrite is lower than on the original test
the posted grade will be lowered to the average of the two grades.
