Chapter 23: Putting Your Revision Skills to Work

Chapter introduction:

In Units 2 and 3, you learned to revise basic paragraphs, and in Unit 4, you learned to revise essays. All revising requires that you rethink and rewrite with such questions as these in mind:

Can a reader understand and follow my ideas?
Is my topic sentence or thesis statement clear?
Does the body of my paragraph or essay fully support the topic or thesis statement?
Does my paragraph or essay have unity? That is, does every sentence relate to the main idea?
Does my paragraph or essay have coherence? That is, does it follow a logical order and guide the reader from point to point?
Does my writing conclude, not just leave off?
