Revising & Editing

1.  As you go in to do your revisions, it might help to separate sentences apart with a double-space so it's easy to find the text line that needs correction.  This step is optional.

2.  READ EACH comment carefully.  "S" comments are spelling suggestions.  "G" comments are grammar comments.  Gray highlights are sentences that have grammar and sentence structure issues.

3.  What to do first? 

4.  Continue revising and editing until there are no errors identified by PEG Writing. You will hit "submit" to see updated revisions in PEG Writing.

5. It is at this point you will gain further development of ideas, organization and style feedback from your instructor, so be ready to share.
