Your second semester paper is a 500 word literary essay, either on Tess of the D'Urbervilles or on 1984. You will revise and polish the one you drafted for your writing assignment.
Choose which 500 word essay you will polish: Tess or 1984?
Peer edit your partner's paper. You need to point out good things and bad things both. Push your partner to stretch beyond a simple explanation and reach for a connection -- toward current events, or toward political philosophy, or toward psychological theory, or toward personal anecdote, or toward another piece of literature. Critique problems but also tell your partner what you think would make the paper better.
