Step 10c: Grammar
As you edit the grammar of your
essay, you should particularly focus on the grammar concepts that
your teacher has previously marked on your papers. For example,
if your teacher has written "run-on" on your previous
papers, especially look at the following instruction on run-ons
and then look carefully over your essay to make sure you're avoiding
them. You should also be familiar with all the rest of the grammar
concepts here and be sure that your essay is grammatically correct.
If a term below looks unfamiliar, learn it. Although a grammatically
perfect essay won't mean that the essay is also perfect, a teacher
is less apt to give you a poor grade if he or she is unable to
justify that grade with grammatical errors. In the minds of many
old fashioned teachers, perfect grammar equals a perfect essay.
When you're done editing for grammar, and you've proofread your
essay a dozen times, you're done. Congratulations!
