1. Use several proofreading techniques described in the videos and proofread your Literature Review.

3. Attach your Literature Review to the initial discussion post.
4. Respond to at least two other students by Friday (midnight) with constructive feedback addressing THREE errors and/or sentences the student could improve.

If you did not use the Writing Studio in Week 6, please explain why to help us better understand what methods you did use to improve your scholarly writing skills.
