fontIn general, you should always use black fonts for writing projects because they are easiest to read. Common fonts like Arial and Times New Roman size 12 are what will be mostly required for formal papers. Save colors for other types of projects like flyers or presentations where there is less text.4W6
3
Then vs. ThanYou are confusing two words that sound similar to one another: "then" and "than." The first minute of this video may be helpful to you: http://vimeo.com/103071955 (you do not need to watch the whole thing)4L1g

capitalization - food namesIf a food has a specific name (e.g., Honeycrisp apple), the name should be capitalized because that is a specific name. In that example, however, apple would not be capitalized because it is a generic noun. To review capitalization rules, you may watch the BrainPop video called "capitalization."4L2a
5
capitalization - proper nouns - consistencyTry to be consistent with your capitalization. If a word/phrase is capitalized in one place that is not the beginning of the sentence, it should be capitalized every time it is used. Same if it's lower case.4L2a
6
run-on sentencesThis is a run-on sentence. For help with this skill, check out the BrainPop video called "Run-On Sentences."4L1f
7
italicsYou should only use italics when you are trying to emphasize an individual word. You should never italicize the entire text -- it makes it harder to read.4W6
8
"things" and "stuff"This is a really vague word. Can you think of something more specific to use here?4L6
9
Add story as evidenceThis would be another good place to tie in a story. Remember that a good story should have a beginning, middle, and end, and it should show why your opinion is true.4W1b
10
conclusion - opinionYou need to develop more of a conclusion here. Your conclusion should be a full paragraph that ties back to all of your previous examples and possibly suggests an action your reader should take as a result of reading your piece. 4W1d
11
transition wordsTry to vary your transition words. You've already used this word/phrase to start a sentence in this paragraph.4W1c
12
they're, their, and thereYou seem to be confusing the homophones they're, their, and there. For help with this skill, check out the BrainPop video called "They're, Their, and There."
13
sentence fragmentsCheck for sentence fragments. Sentence fragments are not complete sentences, and they often don't make sense. For more help with sentence fragments, watch the BrainPop video called "Sentence Fragments."
