Learning Resource Center Tip of the Week: ON WRITING – Editing Tip

The details… When trying to check your paper for organization and flow of ideas, try this trick. Underline (or bold) your thesis statement and the topic sentence from each paragraph. Then read only the marked statements, and ask yourself: Does each topic sentence echo the idea(s) in the thesis statement? Does the order of your topic ideas make the most sense or would re-ordering them improve the flow of ideas in your paper overall?
If you get stuck, don’t forget the tutors in the Learning Resource Center are available to provide whatever assistance and/or guidance you might need. We are here for YOU!
