Tips for proofing

    5. Check spelling by reading it from the end to the begining.
    6. Use your program spell checker.
    7. Focus on each word and read slowly. It may help to cover the words you will read next with paper.

    9. Read with a freind. One out loud while the other listens and follows along.
