today in English we talked about
-Revision
-The informative essay
-Journal 2
-Annotated Bibliography

Revison[center
It's not just hard but time consuming!
The revision part is where the real writing happens
always remember to leave adequate time for revision.

Presentation/Style:
this is determined by the instructor.
It refers to the overall look of the paper and refers to the detail as specific as:
-cover page/header- in this case we use headers and cover pages are not allowed
-font and font size-12 size font, times new roman
paragraphing
citations or notes and references-one of the important parts

Verb Tense: Be consistent
-Put everything into the past
-Just assume that the information is complete

Syntax: Run-On:
make sure you are going back and making corrections
it is really helpful to trick your brain to spot the errors, you can do this by:
-reading the passage out loud
-get someone to read it out loud
-get someone to read it

the comma splice: very slight function, you shouldn't have a lot of commas
semi colons: it is a particular punctuation
they are used to connect the sentences that are very important
you are not going to use them often
best place to put semi colons is in a thesis statement

Run-Ons:
Make clear connection between subjects and verbs
use conjunctions and commas to combine independent clauses

Vocabulary:
Dont use a word because it sounds right, use a word only if it is right. Check the dictionary.

Parellelisms:
Keep parallelisms consistent and to avoid confusion

Word Count:
Choose the text below from below the title through the end.
Keep work within the range assigned[/center]
