Editing Reminders

  • MLA stuff
  • Spelling, Run-ons, Etc. (Read it backward!)
  • Remember that the purpose of editing is to polish your writing. Like a jeweler, you may have a valuable product, but no one will want to buy it until it's shiny and sparkly, so edit accordingly!

Exit Slips

  • On a scratch piece of paper, answer the following questions, anonymously:
  1. What can I do to improve your experience in this class?
  2. What have we done so far this semester that you feel you've most benefited from?
  3. If you could take over the class for a day, what would you have everyone do?
  4. What is your favorite musician?
