Revise your Op-Ed.
To revise effectively you will need to critically engage with your work, reading and rereading it as you refine. While my comments in the margin are meant to help you, just resolving them will not be enough to earn you full credit. Focus your attention on the areas I identify in my note to you.
At Home: Continue revising your political cartoon and Op-Ed. Final drafts are due Friday.
