Theory Paper Revision
Read comments/edits. Make all of the suggested changes that are appropriate. Read over paper yourself. Fix awkward sentences, grammatical errors, incorrect descriptions of theorists, etc.
Choose another theorist to incorporate into the paper. Choose a theorist whose theories and concepts can be used to further explain your story and analyze the story from their perspective. Remember, this does not necessarily mean that you need to guess what the theorist’s opinion is. Rather, use their perspective/theories/concepts to examine the story that you chose. You should add this section to the section following Weber.
Incorporate this theorist into the comparisons section of the paper. Remember, you are not comparing them generally to Marx and Weber, but rather in relation to your news story.
Be sure to adjust your introduction and your conclusion accordingly. This means that both should have some mention of this new theorist (and by that I do not mean one sentence tacked on at the end of the introductory and concluding paragraphs!).
Make sure to add the new theorist to the bibliography.
So just to be clear, you need to revise the paper but not that much because i already got an A. And you need to add an additional 3-4 pages including some of the new readings i attached.
