Do any of these apply to your writing?

  • Your writing shows a sound understanding of the book, but it sounds like you write the way you talk. Bear in mind, next time, that writing sounds different from talking. Next time, try writing it down the way you would normally say it. Wait a day. Then read it again for errors. After that, read it aloud, and listen for errors. You might want to seek help from an LSC resource. We have a variety of support services for online students at Or you can just email me.
  • Your writing is sound; but next time, I'd like you to focus on just one question, and explore it in greater depth, using lots of evidence from the book and reflecting on it carefully at some length.
