  • Moving to Edit





    Take a few moments and review the feedback on your draft from your classmates.  Take their changes into consideration and make final revisions to your paper as necessary.

    Now it’s finally time for editing!  While revision is focused on improving the content of your paper, editing is focused on making sure that your paper is grammatically correct with correctly spelled words, complete sentences, and proper punctuation.  In application writing, it’s absolutely critical that your paper is completely free of grammar errors.

    Use every resource you have to get your paper error-free. Bug your family members and friends to proof your paper. Use the spell check and grammar check tools of your word processor. Use online tools like Read your paper backward. (Start at the end and read one sentence at a time. That way, your mind won't be distracted by the content and you're more likely to see an error.) 

    Do what it takes to have this perfect.
