Time for a closer look

In the previous learning pathway, you have been introduced to the revision process and completed the fly over step of the process. You evaluated your essay for its content, clarity, organisation and how well it met the expectations of your target audience. Now it’s time to go a little deeper and to start editing and proofreading. First, you’re going to look at the quality of your words.



The overall purpose of this learning pathway is to learn the advantages of editing and proofreading. Your goal is to:

  • Learn about the steps involved in the editing and proofreading process.
  • Learn that the words you use are important and improving their quality at a microlevel can have a positive impact on your essay as a whole.
  • Learn to choose your words carefully.
