Resources: Revision Matrix Template located in the Week Two Materials section of the student website.
 Review your facilitator’s feedback comments on the Week One essay.
 Complete the revision matrix as follows:
 In the first column, copy/paste each facilitator feedback comment from your graded essay. Include feedback comments that your facilitator inserted in colored text in the body of the paper and/or numbered comments in the margin or at the bottom of the screen (depending on how the facilitator formatted the comments). If the facilitator made the same comment multiple times, you can include the comment once, but you should indicate how many times the facilitator made the comment. For numbered comments, include the comment number(s).
 In the second column, accurately put each facilitator comment in your own words.
 In the third column, include a detailed and specific action plan for implementing each facilitator feedback comment in your final paper. As part of your action plan, include specific page numbers from the APA manual. Note: Page numbers alone do not qualify as an action plan.
 Your action plan must demonstrate that you have engaged in critical thinking about how you will improve the content as well as the writing style of your final essay. Simplistic and vague statements such as “I will improve my writing” or “I will use the APA manual” do not qualify as detailed and specific improvement strategies.
 Include any feedback-related questions for your facilitator at the bottom of the matrix.
