  3. Ok, so seriously now. How many of you don’t care to proofread? Go ahead, you can raise your hand; nobody is going to call on you to explain your position.

    Proofreading is a hassle. You have just spent hours writing your paper; your thoughts have mentally culminated; and now you have to check to see if your work is fine. Isn’t it good enough that MS Word already does the spell checking?

    Proofreading is important because if your work is filled with obstacles, then your message cannot clearly be understood. So here are a couple of proofreading tips that work for me.

    1. Have someone else read it.
    2. Read your paper printed out on paper.
    3. Read your paper aloud.
    4. Read your paper from the end.
    5. Realize that proper proofreading, editing and rewriting can take as much time (or longer) as your initial writing… so plan accordingly.

  4. Mark – your idea does not account for the popular saying “if you wait until the last minute, it only takes a minute to do.” Your theory is more like planning considerations: One third – two thirds rule. One third to write the paper and two thirds for review, rewrite, and proof.

    Seriously – I do like your comments. However, I would add a recommendation of a overnight or day break between writing and proofing. This gives you a chance to almost see the paper from a new angle.

    Question is, how much of the class checks the website to watch the video?

  5. I agree with Mark’s proofreading tips. It is important that writers proofread his or her finished product in order to verify that the message is clear, concise and understandable by its readers.
