    Quick Tips!

    Read your paper out loud! It might sound silly, but 99% of the time, you'll catch your silly grammar mistakes or awkward wording that you've missed while typing away.

    Set interim deadlines.  This means setting timeframes for yourself or goals to reach by breaking the paper down into manageable parts.  You might work to parse out each section of the rubric and work to acheive each part every few days or weeks depending on your final due date.

    Peer review.  Ask a friend or classmate to read through portions you're concerned about.  The paper should be clearly written, enough that anyone will be able to understand the general idea, even if they're unfamiliar with certain terminology.
