Step 3: First Draft

You will write a first version, or draft of your paper and bring it to class.

Be sure this paper is typed or neatly printed, and double-spaced so that a classmate can read it.

Usually, we will have time to peer review first drafts in class.

This means that your classmates will try to help you make your paper longer and more interesting.  They will write questions on your paper to give you ideas. They will let you know if they can’t understand something you have written. They may suggest changes in the way you have organized the paper.

On the first draft, we still do not worry too much about grammar, spelling and punctuation, as long as people can understand your writing.
