WRITING SKILLS CHECKLIST

Use this checklist when you begin editing your work. Print out a copy of your document and read it aloud. Place a checkmark to indicate places or passages on your document where the idea or concept seems clear or “right,” and an X where the idea or concept seems to be misunderstood or “wrong,” or where something needs to be added. Write directly on your draft and notate areas that prompted you to place a checkmark on the checklist. Once completed, revise your document to eliminate the problems you noted and review your final draft, checking off the sections below to ensure that all problems were addressed. Use the “other” rows at the bottom for any additional issues.
