Writing – Reader’s Draft

Reader’s Draft

Notes

Writers need to use the following features to make sure that their paragraphs are easy to read:

  • State the main idea
  • Write in third person
  • Relate information and ideas to the main idea
  • Focus on an audience

Usually, there is room for other improvements in a reader’s draft. For example, word choice, sentence structure and spelling may require changes in order to improve the text. For a final draft, these changes need to be made in a reader’s draft to remove any roadblocks to reading.
