Goal: Your Essay 1 Final should be a complete revision of your Essay 1 First Draft.
New Tasks: This week, you have been assigned to read the article, “Oldest Kid, Smartest Kid?” That piece of writing should inform your consideration of the writing topic. In your revision, include a one-paragraph summary of the article. In that paragraph, you should either AGREE with the arguments made by the author, or you should DISAGREE with her arguments. Your position will depend on the stance you have taken in your overall argument.
Resources: Keep the suggestions in mind from your reading in They Say/I Say. Those suggestions are designed to help you a) explain an issue, b) summarize the ideas of other authors who are writing about an issue, and c) respond to the topic with your own ideas.
