Revising and Proofreading

Guidelines for Proofreading

For most people, learning grammar is the first step in learning to write. Rules of grammar are the foundation for clear sentences, and clear sentences lead directly to good writing.

Using Transitions

Transition words or phrases are needed in writing to guide the reader through your discussion or argument.

Dealing with Organizational Problems

In your writing you must make your ideas not only clear for yourself, but also for your readers. Being organized is a matter of balancing your ideas and how you convey them to your readers.

Guidelines for Revising

Revision can be thought of as the process of reviewing your rough draft and making changes that bring it to a final draft.
