You have an opportunity to earn 10 bonus points if you turn your final draft in on time. They are due next week (1/14, B day and 1/15, A day). These bonus points can improve the grade you earned on the first draft. The actual final draft grade will count in the third quarter average.
As you revise, don't forget to apply all the feedback we provided on your first draft. Also, consider the lessons we've had in the past week: word variety, transitions, and weaving in a variety of support. Don't forget to create a works cited page using easybib.com.
