Revision activity | Psychology homework help


Complete the following revision activities to help you to revise your final paper. 

Activity 1: Memory draft (5 minutes)

  • Set aside what you have written
  • WITHOUT looking at your paper, try to write your introduction and thesis from memory

Activity 2: Reverse Outline (20 minutes)  

  1. Number the paragraphs of your paper.
  2. On a separate sheet of paper, or using note cards, list the number of paragraphs in your paper, giving a line or two for each number (or a card for each)
  3. Turn to your paper, read the first paragraph, and write on your list or card the main point you make in this paragraph.
    1. If you can’t summarize the content of a paragraph, you probably have multiple ideas in play in that paragraph that may need revising, note each of the ideas expressed in the paragraph.
  4. Do the same for each paragraph of your paper in turn.
  5. Now focus on your list (or cards), which reflects the direction of your paper
    a. How well does the list cohere?
    b. How does one idea connect to the next?
    c. Are the connections between ideas made explicit in your writing?
  6. Use your outline to do four things:
    1. See whether each paragraph plays a role in supporting your thesis.
    2. What needs to be revised – your thesis? Or the order of the points in your argument?
    3. Look for unnecessary repetition of ideas.
    4. Compare your reverse outline with your paper to see whether the sentences in each
      paragraph are related to the main point of that paragraph, per the reverse outline.
