After making big changes to improve a paragraph, you need to make little changes (editing) to correct any remaining errors. You'll look for problems with sentences, punctuation, capitalization, grammar, usage, and spelling. The following activities will help you edit your writing.
Editing for Sentences
Every sentence needs a subject and a verb. The subject is the person, place, thing, or idea that the sentence is about. The verb tells something about the subject.
If a group of words does not have a subject or a verb, it is a fragment.
To fix a fragment, add the part that is missing—subject, verb, or both.
