Starting with your Grammar Assessment and reviewing all instructor feedback and quiz results, create a list of your five most frequent errors. Add your list of five errors to the “Editing Checklist” handout. Next, choose two proofreading strategies from section 9.4 of Essentials of College Writing and use those strategies to edit your essay. For your initial post:
- Attach a copy of your editing checklist.
- Describe the two proofreading strategies that you used.

Reflection posts must be 300 to 400 words in length and posted by Day 3. You are not required to respond to your peers, but may do so if you choose.

Refer to the Ashford Writing Center’s Citation and Reference Guide for guidelines on citing sources in APA style.
