Step 8. REREAD your essay.  Correct all the errors you find.  Do I need to suggest a few?  Check spelling (dictionary), check capitalization and punctuation (Learning Grammar Through Writing, is our favourite child-friendly help), take out unnecessary words  (. "In my opinion, I think that...." is saying the same thing twice, and starting every sentence with "Now" or "Then" ) , and change any sentences or words that do not seem right.   Some parental help at this point is very helpful in building better essays.
