Proofreading is the process of carefully going over a written report, story, or letter before the final copy is made. We proofread to be sure there are no mistakes, and when we find a mistake, we correct it… right? Unfortunately, for many students proofreading is a foreign concept. All too often students turn in a "finished" classroom assignment that is full of careless mistakes! This step-by-step book was designed to help students learn, practice, and incorporate this vital skill into their written work.
