Post:  The Declaration of Independence *titles may differ

This Week’s Comment “Look-for’s” 

NOTE:  By no means do you need to include something for each look-for.  Please feel free to just pick 2 or 3.  However, please make sure to leave them with 2 or more tips to improve their writing.  This is helpful when we have them read your comment and go back to revise their post.

Look-for #1:  Main Idea and Closing Sentence – A quality main idea sentence that includes key words about the topic and sets the reader up for understanding the purpose of the writing.  Same goes for a closing sentence.

Look-for #2:  Elaboration of Details – Not just stating a fact and moving on to the next one, but stating a fact and then sharing more about it.

Look-for #3:  Spelling and Capitalization – In particular, for the words, “Declaration of Independence” as well as their title
