Useful Tip for Identifying Mistakes

Over the course of this semester, professors will require students to write many academic papers from policy memos to research papers to literature reviews and so on. After staring at a computer screen for hours, it is possible that you may overlook some mistakes in your papers, for example, subject-verb agreement, prepositions, and verb tenses.

A great way to identify grammatical mistakes is by reading your paper out loud.  Although it seems time-consuming, you will have a better chance of detecting errors in your paper.

After writing, take a short break and then find a quiet place without distractions where you can read your paper out loud.  This will allow you to focus and will help make sure that your final draft is error-free.
