English Discussion

Reflect: Review the feedback you received from the Ashford Writing Center and consider how you will apply their suggestions as you develop your draft into a final critical response essay. Consider the revision, proofreading, and editing steps you have taken in the last two weeks. Were they effective? How can you make the revision process—especially proofreading and editing—a part of every assignment in college and the workplace?
