-edit and revise effectively, recognizing the two as distinct activities and developing strategies for generating critical distance when rereading
-develop a reasonable and informed system of criteria for judging texts
2. Participate as writers in an academic discussion, understanding the conventions, features, and objectives of academic texts
-develop a claim that matters in the context of a continuing discussion, writing with a sense of intellectual purpose and stake
-make academic writing articulate a process of thinking, not just recite information
-understand the differences between the kinds of writing academic writers are called upon to do
-understand that readers in different disciplines approach text with different expectations and preferences
3. Make ideas cohere effectively in texts
-imagine meaningful shapes for ideas, so that a text's form is a natural manifestation of what one wants to say
-recognize identifiable genres and shape texts around different generic expectations where appropriate
-sequence thoughts effectively, articulating connections between a text's individual discussions
-marshal and present meaningful evidence
4. Write in a way that's responsive to the texts and voices around one
-analyze and respond thoughtfully to competing claims
-evaluate and choose appropriate texts for citation
-cite effectively and properly, conforming to academic expectations concerning paraphrase, quotation, attribution, and bibliographical forms
-make informed choices about voice and style, using one's reading as a resource for rhetorical models
5. Reflect thoughtfully on one's own written work
-assess the effectiveness of individual pieces of writing
-consider how one's writing skills and practices are related to one's broader intellectual predispositions and habits of mind
6. Adapt to emerging textual technologies and media
-consider how different media lend themselves to the expression of different sorts of ideas
-consider how texts acquire new meanings as they circulate through new media to different and sometimes unexpected audiences
7. Write fluently and effectively at the sentence level
-demonstrate an evolving mastery of standard written American English
-develop a facility with some range of complex sentence forms
-understand the conventional, historical, and rhetorical nature of grammatical prescription
