Question and answer
Q: As you revise your essay, what important components should you look for?
A: A. Introduction: Starts the paper off broad and tapers down to be specific. You should get your audience?s attention right away in the first 3 sentences. The thesis is located at the end of the introduction. B. B. [ Thesis: Usually the thesis is one sentence long and it expresses all the major components found within the entire essay. Try to structure your thesis following this formula
"Although x, it should be y because of z"C. All Paragraphs in the body of the Paper Should Include: * Transition Sentences: these sentences link one paragraph?s ideas to the following paragraph?s ideas. The transition sentence should be the first sentence of the new paragraph never the last sentence of the previous paragraph. Your transition sentence is basically your topic sentence. It links the two paragraphs together and explains in a microscopic way what the new paragraph will discuss. * Topic Sentence: explains what the entire paragraph is about. * Finalizing Sentence: the last sentence of the paragraph that sums up what you want your readers to understand about that one paragraph. D. Conclusion: This paragraph starts off specific with a reiteration of the main claim (thesis) and tapers out to broad. (Never use the exact same words from the thesis statement when you write the conclusion. Say the same ideas with different words. The conclusion helps reaffirm to the reader what specifically you want them to walk away knowing and remembering, so it too is an important feature of the essay. source: capswriting.pbworks.com/.../... ]

User: What is the difference between revising and editing?

Weegy: You should proofread your paper to edit mistakes such as spelling errors, punctuation mistakes, common word mix-ups, and other mechanical problems. [ While the editing process targets grammar problems, the revision process should focus on readability, logic, and clarity. When you revise a paper, the first step is to read the paper to see if it flows from one topic to another in a sensible manner. You examine the paper to determine if the organization is logical, if the paper fits the actual assignment, or if you veered off-topic at any point. During the revision process, you will find yourself rewriting paragraphs to make them sound better and to make sure they support the claims you made in the thesis statement. ]

User: Which do you struggle with the most?

User: What is the difference between revising and editing? Which do you struggle with the most? Why is it difficult to do both at once? Which should be done first and why?

Weegy: editing a paper, requires proofreading and correcting, or editing mistakes such as spelling errors,during the revising process you most likely target grammar,logic and clarity, [ most students struggle with the revising part,but at the global level you revise and redraft to get your text right,So you pay attention to your overall argument, the logical flow of your ideas, the quality of your evidence. In the same way, you need to tackle each chapter, section, sub-section, paragraph and even certain sentences. You can't work at all of these levels at the same time. You have to work first with the global structure and get that clear, then move to the next level down. It is pointless to become preoccupied with single paragraphs or sentences if the whole structure of the larger part is not firmly established. It could happen that these paragraphs don't make it to the final draft. Always revise anything larger than a paragraph on a hard copy of the text. If you do everything on the computer screen, you could have trouble seeing the whole structure, even of a section let alone a chapter. ]
