providing feedback. Enjoyable reading material. Word choice is one of the “lower-order concerns” I will concentrate on the portfolio and the peer review. Choose words the audience will understand; words that fit the subject and purpose; eliminate words that do not contribute to the meaning; look for big words only to impress the reader or audience. I will also concentrate on punctuation so reads with grasp the meaning, follow a system of rules and not he natural pauses made when reading. Sentence structure will is also important and read better than wordy or short sentences. Check the paper for awkward, inconsistent, or incorrect sentences. One faulty belief of writers is that longer, wordy sentences are better than simple, clearer ones. Advocate for a blend of long and simple sentences.
