adapted for media from Getting Feedback

The Writing Center, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

 
bullet The beginning/idea stage: Do I understand the assignment? Am I gathering the right kinds of information to answer this question? Are my strategies for approaching this assignment effective ones? How can I discover the best way to develop my early ideas into a feasible draft?
bullet Outline/thesis: I have an idea about what I want to argue, but I'm not sure if it is an appropriate or complete response to this assignment.
Is the way I'm planning to organize my ideas working? Does it look like I'm covering all the bases?
Do I have a clear main point?
Do I know what I want to say to the reader?
bullet Rough draft: Does my creation make sense, and is it interesting?
Have I completed my focus?
Is the evidence I'm using convincing?
Is it explained clearly?
Have I given the viewer/audience enough information? Does the information seem to be in the right order? What can I say in my introduction and conclusion?
bullet Early polished draft: Are the transitions between my ideas smooth and effective? Do my sentences make sense individually? How's my writing style?
bullet Late or final polished draft:
Are there any noticeable  errors?
Are my images, sounds, links okay?
Does it seem effective?
Is there anything I should change at the last minute?
bullet After the fact: How should I interpret the feedback comments?
Why did I receive the grade I did?
What else might I have done to strengthen the assignment?

Maybe you could improve this: part, sentence, idea.

Why donít you start with this and then add that?

You could explain this part more.

Is this really necessary?

I donít understand this Ö

What do you mean here?

Maybe you could add more: arguments, facts, research.

The language is a bit: complicated, too simple, confusing.

It looks: great, dramatic, unorganized.

I think you have accomplished your goals in your focus sentence!
