Stage 3: Write a revised draft of the complete analysis. To do so, review the feedback you received on Stage 1 and 2, and use those comments as you revise your writing to build this next draft. Your draft should be 1,800 words (double-spaced). In section, you will receive (and give) peer review on this assignment, and then make revisions. Peer-review completion is worth 5 points; peer review guidelines will be provided.
Stage 4: Write a final paper and attach a separate 2 paragraph revision memo. The final paper should be the revised draft and should be 1500-1800 words (double-spaced). The revision memo should highlight the changes that you made after peer-review and explain why you made them so your TA can see your progress. The final paper and attached revision memo are due posted to GauchoSpace in PDF format by the end of our exam period during Final Exam Week; early submissions are welcome. Revise your draft and submit your final paper, worth 25 points.
