Rough Draft Editing Questions (Answer these questions with specific details , reasons , and explanations . The more specific and detailed you are , the more help you will be giving

1 . Is there one clear focus throughout the draft ? Yes

2 . What is the specific question at issue the writer is responding to (If it is not clear to you or if there seems to be more than one question , point that out ) Which of the two dialogues is more effective and why

3 . What is the author ‘s thesis (Remember , the [banner_entry_middle]

7 . What about spelling , grammar , and punctuation ? Are they perfect What needs attention ? Some misspelling , quotation marks used where MLA calls for italics

8 . What about MLA format ? MLA format states some sort of citation should be given if quotes are used . Without knowing how the media was presented to the writer , it is hard to say whether or not they should have indicated page numbers . Also there is no reference page at the end
