Editing the descriptive process essay and submitting the final draft

What we did in class, today – I demonstrated how to edit the descriptive process essay using SpellCheck and Paper Rater and by proofreading. Afterwards, students edited their own papers and then submitted them to Turnitin. This paper is worth 10% of the course grade.
