76100 Dr. Di Prete CMU November 15, 2007 Reflection Memo for Selective Essay In this essay, I corrected sentences and paragraphs in a way that readers follow them easily. I tried to emphasize how the flow of sentences changes. For example, when there are contrasting two short sentences, I connected them with ‘although,’ ‘while’ and ‘however.’ Such metadiscourses like ‘more strictly put,’ ‘in other words,’ and ‘in that sense’ are to connect two sentences smoothly, letting readers expect what is coming. For the introduction paragraph, I summarized similarity and difference between Hayakawa’s and Rodriguez’s essay. In the comparison essay, I started out with the subject ‘both the authors’ to clarify that I am comparing the similarity. The structure ‘Just as A does…, B does…’ is used for similarity. ‘For the same reason’ is used to compare how one author’s point is similar to another.
