My feedback will include citing examples of where you made certain types of errors such as spelling, grammar, format, and structure. I will also include suggestions on how to rewrite parts of your paper to be clearer and more concise with better continuity. It will be your responsibility to find and correct other similar instances of these types of errors and opportunities for improvement that must be incorporated into your final paper. In other words, just because I don’t point out a mistake in your draft, it doesn’t mean it will be acceptable in the final paper.
