Directions for Correcting a Theme

When a theme is returned to you, number each correction, and draw a
heavy circle about the number. Then take another sheet of paper, and using
the numbers that correspond to those on your theme, state in each case the
error you made; then correct it, and give your reason for making this
correction: for instance, if the mistake is marked W, i.e. a word misused,
state whether the word to which the critic objected is not in good usage, or
is too often repeated, or does not give the idea intended. Next, supply the
proper word and show that it fits the place. Answer any questions asked by
the critic and follow out any suggestion given. Put the sheet of corrections
in proper form for a M.S. Fasten the sheet to your original theme and hand
both to the teacher in charge of the laboratory. No credit will be given for
any written theme until the mistakes are corrected.

The following signs are used to indicate mistakes in a theme:
C--Capital needed.

lc--No capital needed.
A--Mistake in use of the apostrophe.
S--Word misspelled.
P--Mistake in punctuation.
G--Mistake in grammar.
W--Wrong word used.
Cons--The construction of the sentence is poor.
D--The statement is ambiguous.
O--Order. This may refer to arrangement of words in a sentence, of

sentences in a paragraph, or of paragraphs in a theme.
U--The sentence or paragraph lacks unity.
X--Discover the mistake for yourself.
