Writing practice

What we did in class, today – We practiced writing as much as we could in five minutes. Then, we copied and pasted the paragraph into Paper Rater and discussed how to use the feedback from Paper Rater to improve our writing on the final exam. For example, if the word usage report indicates that you overuse the word very, you would look up synonyms to use such as extremely.


  1. Complete Reading Practices 1 and 2 in MyGUST before class on Tuesday.
  2. Do two five-minute writing practices in separate Word files. (Be sure to type your name at the top of the page .) After you submit each paragraph to PaperRater, copy each of the feedback comments into your files, e.g. spelling feedback, word choice feedback, grade feedback, etc. Print a copy of each of your exercises and bring it to class on Tuesday.

What we will do in class on Tuesday, May 13 – We will discuss the Accuplacer final and do a practice exercise.
