Course Paper Rough Draft Instructions
Instructions: First, submit your complete Course Paper Rough Draft as approved by your GRST instructor on the Course Approval Form. Your Course Paper Rough Draft must be at least four pages of text (including introduction, body, and conclusion), cite at least four sources, and follow a current format style (Turabian, MLA, AMA, or APA) in accordance with your selected discipline. Submit the completed rough draft to your GRST instructor on Blackboard and to the Online Writing Center (OWC) by filling out a tutoring request form located on their website: www.liberty.edu/onlinewritingcenter. Select the FULL REVIEW option when filling out the tutoring request form for a draft review.
Your GRST instructor will provide feedback on the draft within a week and will return your paper so you can make your final, improved revision of your paper. Your instructor will score your draft according to the Course Paper Grading Rubric which is available in the Assignment Instructions folder of this course.
You must also submit the draft to the Online Writing Center to complete the OWC Feedback step of your course paper process. To do so, you will need to fill out a Request Tutoring Form on their website. This is a wonderful free service for all Liberty University Online students. The goal is for you to understand how to successfully use this service in the future, so if you run into computer trouble, don’t worry! Remember the Help Desk is available to you or you may also email [email protected] for assistance. Also, please read and follow the OWC’s guidelines first. Then, use the tutoring link on their website to submit your Request Tutoring Form: www.liberty.edu/onlinewritingcenter. On the request form, be sure to include the real assignment instructions and rubric pertaining to your draft, not just the GRST requirement of 4 pages and 4 sources. That way, your tutor can provide the most specific assistance possible.
Assignment Goal: Submit your draft to your GRST instructor and receive feedback so you can improve your writing process. Also, submit your draft to the OWC for a FULL review. Learn how to use the OWC for your future writing projects at Liberty University Online.
Note: You must submit your completed draft to your GRST instructor and to the Online Writing Center. You must show your GRST instructor that you have received a full OWC review of your paper (due Module/Week 6). Then you must make a final, improved revision of your paper to pass the class, making sure to include your Revision Report (due Module/Week 7). You must improve the grading rubric score earned on your draft submission and score a 3 or higher in each rubric category. You might be pressed for time, so remember that though feedback from the OWC normally takes 48–72 hours, during Week 6 following your submission, feedback often takes one week. This means that once you successfully submit your paper for a full review, you will receive it back within one week. Feedback from your GRST instructor also takes about a week.
Submit the Course Paper Rough Draft by 11:59 p.m. (ET) on Sunday of Module/Week
