Monday, Dec. 8: Today we finished writing our five paragraph essays on Native American literature. If you’re not done with yours on time, you’ll miss the opportunity to edit with the rest of the group. That means you will need to self-edit a lot more, to make sure you end up with at least 20 proofreading symbols on your first draft.

Tuesday, Dec. 9: Today we started peer editing our Native American literature essays. Since you were gone for this, you will need to self-edit quite a bit, to make sure you end up with at least 20 correctly-formed proofreading symbols on your first draft.
