Due: Wednesday, April 4, at the beginning of class
Turn-In: Bring your marked-up paper copy to class.
- Go into DropBox/GWRJ-information/articles_to_proofread. These are your classmates’ clean versions (as they uploaded them) of the Stage 3-4 edits.
- Choose an article by a DIFFERENT AUTHOR than the one you copy edited for Stages 1-4. (e.g., if you chose Phillips’ tattoo article for copy-editing, you CANNOT proofread any of the clean versions of Phillips’ tattoo article done by your classmates.)
- Print the article.
- Using the GWRJ style guide and your own style guide choices from your report assignment as style references, hand-mark any remaining changes to the text using the proofreading marks from Chapter 13.
- Mark your name in pencil/pen on the top-right of your marked-up copy.
- Another student will input your changes into the clean documents next week in class as part of an in-class assignment. (This prompts you to be assured, and neat, in your corrections.)
Due: Wednesday, March 21, by midnight
Upload: DropBox/assignment turn-ins/stage3-4_copyedits
- “stage3-4edits_FIRSTNAME-tc” (for the Track Changed version)
- “stage 3-4edits_FIRSTNAME-clean” (for the clean version)
- “author-query_FIRSTNAME” (for your letter of transmittal to the author)
Take the same article you did Stage 1-2 edits on, and follow the Kairos 8-stage copy-editing model for Stages 3 and 4. That translates to editing for style (using the NEW Grassroots style sheet you made in class on Wed. March 7; see http://tinyurl.com/gwrj-ss-353) and proofreading that document. You should
- LEAVE the version that you turned in for the 1-2 edits in that folder (so I can check them separately; make a copy of it, if you need to),
- rename the file,
- clear/accept the stage 1-2 edits
- paper- and/or electronic-edit (the end version needs to be electronic and show Track Changes) for style
- save a COPY of the changed version as the clean version & remove/accept the changes
- write your letter of transmittal to the author
- upload BOTH versions and the letter to the dropbox folder
The versions you upload should be the “final” (best you can possibly do) version, ready for production.
