Correctness should be the last element that you address in a piece of writing. When editing for correctness, you check your writing for punctuation, capitalization, spelling, and grammar errors.
Review the “Strategies for Editing” list in the middle of page 76 of your text. Use these strategies to thoroughly edit your process essay that you wrote in Learning Plan 6. When checking for errors, examine your writing word for word and sentence by sentence. You will submit the corrected version of your process essay to the dropbox. To show where you made corrections, make all corrections bold. For example, if you add a comma, make the comma bold. If you correct a misspelled word, make the corrected word bold. If you rewrote a sentence for clarity, make the whole sentence bold. If you removed a punctuation mark, make the word before the removed punctuation bold.
