Important Caveat

As you can imagine, for students with multiple, serious errors, this approach is time-consuming and can feel extremely tedious. But our goal is to help writers do this editing on their own, not to do it for them, and this approach is just about the only way to help them learn to edit the common errors they make in their own writing. Most classroom explanations of grammar and editing fail to teach much, if anything, because students don't see those errors in their own sentences.
