    How technology can help our students become better writers

  • 3. What are we trying to do?
    Make our students more aware of the stylistic and structural format of their writing by helping them to be better proofreaders.
    The “Who, Why, What and Where”….
  • 4. Students know how to write a paper
    But can they write well?
    Proofreading is a “stage” in the writing process, not a “step.”
    Basic Assumptions
  • 5. Prewriting
    Brainstorm, idea mapping, developing thesis
    Research
    Supporting the argument- building rhetoric

    Revising
    Cleaning it up.
    Editing/Proofreading
    Perfecting it.

    How do we make proofreading successful?
  • 18. Give yourself some distance between writing and proofreading.
    Get a friend to hear you read your paper and read it back to you.
    Don’t rely on spell check alone.
    Try experiencing your paper differently.

    Checklists – Grade your own work.
  • 22. If proofreading is a stage just like research, we need time to do it.
    Don’t just wait until the last minute!
