Looking for Mistakes

Looking for mistakes in any piece of writing is extremely important. This is just another way to say “proofreading.” You need to proofread whatever you have written to look for any grammatical mistakes, spelling mistakes, or other structural mistakes of your sentences.

Like I said, this is extremely important. So, generally, ask for someone else to look over your paper. This could be a parent, a friend, a spouse, a colleague. You want someone else with another brain to look over your paper and look for any mistakes.

If you can’t get someone else to help you, or if it’s against school policy to have someone else look over your paper, try reading it aloud to yourself. So, I’m going to write up here on the board “read aloud,” because that’s an important point.
