Common Writing Errors
Use this page to teach students about the 12 most common errors in conventions. By avoiding these errors, students can eliminate a large number of problems from their own writing. For more information about each error, direct students to the pages listed in the cross-references.
Have students search for these errors in a revised draft of their own. Ask them to make changes to improve the conventions in their writing.
You'll find an even more complete list of errors (with cross-references) on page 56.
