How Ustar teachers review students’ writings?
Ustar writing teachers will review students’ submissions and pay attention to things such as sentence structure, word choice, voice, spelling, paragraph and etc.. These revisions will be done in a different color, and the edit system will be
strike through = delete this part, italicized = fixed spelling, bold = reworded/added words.
Ustar writing teachers will also be leaving some comments at the end of their submission; these are intended for more significant suggestions, such as what they could elaborate on or focus on when revising their submission. We will be keeping a copy of each student’s initial submission so that they can compare their final draft to it and see how much the writing has improved/been added upon.
