Smart revision is no easy task. Trouble spots are simple to find, but tough to correct. Far too often, we toss whole paragraphs, rewrite from scratch, and end up with just as many problems as before. If you’re ready to stop reinventing the wheel, one simple question to ask is, “who is doing what to whom?” The answer reveals subjects, verbs, and objects that magically fall into place as coherent sentences in logically ordered paragraphs. This webinar in NCTC’s ongoing series for Critical Writers / Critical Thinkers will help you to identify draft material that can benefit from revision. You’ll learn how to ask and answer simple questions that yield helpful clues to sentence and paragraph structure. Finally, you’ll practice putting these structures into place, clarifying your own writing as well as the work of others. Best of all, you’ll save time and energy as you learn to revise more efficiently. - - Objectives—At the completion of this webinar you will be able to: - - Identify sentences and paragraphs that could benefit from revision. - Answer the question, “who is doing what to whom?” - Put the answer into subject, verb, object positions to create coherent sentences.
