Error Checklist

Fornes

Your Error Checklists

Using my comments and the checkmarks on your drafts, you will develop your own error checklist. To complete the checklist, look through the draft of your first paper, concentrating on my comments but also looking for errors that I did not note. For each error, complete the table below.

Your error checklist will provide a guide to the specific grammar and mechanical errors that you need to study.

You will submit all of your error checklists with your mid-semester and final portfolios.
