state three (3) things that you will be looking for as you revised and proofread (e.g. organization, structure, grammar elements). Discuss the strategies that you will implement to ensure that your assingment is polished and in final draft format.
Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
Read the paper aloud as if you are reading a story. Listen for
errors. If you listen carefully,
you will be able to correct any errors that you hear. Listen for incomplete phrases, sentences
and ideas, as well as things that sound funny.
Read one sentence at a time.
Using a sheet of clean paper, cover all the text
except the first sentence. Read
this sentence carefully. Does it
sound and look correct? Does it
say what you want it to say?
Continue down the page in the same way.
Look for patterns of error.
Personal patterns: All writers
make mistakes that are typical of their writing. If you always forget commas, check for
commas. If you always have trouble
with transitions, look for transitions.
If you work on wordiness, look for this. Bring your essays to the writing
center! A tutor can help you to
locate the patterns of error.
List: Keep a list of your trouble
spots. Use this as a checklist
and refer to it as you edit.
4. Know your grammar and
punctuation rules or know where to look them up.
Study the rules of grammar and
punctuation. Review the ones you don’t
know. If you have a writing handbook or
handouts, keep them out when you write.
Refer to them when you have questions as you write and edit.
Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
