Revision Checklist: CRM Research Paper

Introduction: Does your introduction start with general information about the
civil rights movement then include general information about your topic and
then give your thesis on your topic?
Thesis: Does your thesis present an argument or a simple fact? Can it be
proven in the rest of your paper?
Topic sentences: Does the first sentence of each paragraph relate to your
thesis? Does it help prove your thesis? Does it introduce the topic of the
Body paragraphs: Does each body paragraph help prove your thesis? Is
each body paragraph on only one topic? Is each body paragraph 8
sentences to half a page?
Quotes: Does each quote help support the topic of its paragraph, a topic
sentence, and your thesis? Does it help support what has come before (or is
coming after) it or does it appear to be randomly thrown in? Is your
quotation introduced and explained?
Citations: Is each quote, paraphrase, word, or phrase that is not your own
cited? (Remember that if it is not you could lose ALL credit for your
portfolio!) Is each citation correct? Have you checked your citations with an
online citation generator, an MLA guide, or Ms. Perry? Are you certain that
all paraphrased information is cited as well as quotes? Are you certain that
you have used in-text citations rather than only a works cited?
Conclusion: Does each paragraph have a concluding sentence that wraps up
the paragraph and transitions to the next? Are you sure NONE of your
paragraphs end with a quote? Does your last paragraph conclude the paper?
Have you used it as your final argument or is it just a restatement? Have
you included your thesis?

If you feel confident about all of these elements you are now ready to edit!
