Drafts must be followed by an annotated bibliography with at least three reliable and authoritative sources. Revisions must take into account all of the suggested changes and mandatory corrections of the original paper and annotated bibliography. In order to be accepted, the original and annotatedbibliography must be attached to the final version.

The grade of the revision will reflect the amount of work that went into the first draft (that must be tightly constructed and highly polished), the annotated bibliography and the revision of the original. Much weight goes into the improvement of the original.

Hopefully, the different stages of the paper will reinforce the idea thatwriting is a process.

The format of the papers should follow the following specifications:
* Paper: Letter
* Margins: One inch top and bottom
* Fonts:
* Times New Roman
* Size 12
* Spacing: Double space

Presentation: Prepare a 90 second to 3 minute video clip in which you summarize, explain and contextualize the poem of your choice. Upload the video ontoMoodle.
