Try It: Proofreading

To Do

  1. Using the guidance in this section, create your own personal Proofreading Checklist. What particular concerns do you need to focus on while proofreading your essay? What patterns in your writing do you most want to work on improving?
  2. Apply the checklist to your most current Persuasive Essay draft. Note the items you make changes to as a result of this evaluation of your draft.
  3. Consult with a tutor at the Enhancement Center. Bring your proofreading checklist and the most current version of your essay draft with you for the discussion.
