Ask a classmate to be a project partner

  • Regularly trade papers, suggest edits, and keep each other on track

Ask the professionals

Ask your family or friends

  • Set weekly check-ins to share your progress

Get feedback

  • Ask for feedback from others early and often

Ask for more than grammar editing

  • Early drafts: Can the reader understand your main concepts? What is confusing?
  • Next drafts: Are the thoughts/paragraphs arranged in a logical order? Is it clearly written?
  • Later drafts: Are there grammar, spelling, or punctuation errors?
