    I have two questions about fixing the essay.
    1. How much content points do earn back if we have a new half-sheet from someone in the other period?
    2. When we fix our essays, do we print out the new essay, or do we rewrite the sentences with the errors correctly?

      Hi Wendy,
      1. Sorry. I should have corrected that earlier, but you can only get points toward mechanics (not content).
      2. Yes, print out the new essay and staple it to the front. (just use the draft you already created)

      In the future, direct questions should be sent to me via email.
