Learn How to Edit

I loved the new ways of editing that Deanna told us to use in class today. Honestly, whenever I edit a paper, all I do is read and re-read looking for the same kinds of mistakes over and over. When we sat with our partners I got more editing in than I could ever have done on my own. Elizabeth helped me so much by telling me what didn't make sense and what sentences I should change or fix.  We spent about thirty minutes on each other's papers but in the end, our papers argued the points we were trying to argue much more effectively.
I didn't get around to trying the two other editing techniques, but I will before Tuesday.
