Some Common Issues: 

Some Common Issues Incorrectly formatted numbers Bad verbs! Improperly formatted compound sentences Anthropomorphism Long paragraphs Extraneous words Folksy language Etymology: Late Latin anthropomorphus of human form, from Greek anthrOpomorphos , from anthrOp - + - morphos - morphous 1 : described or thought of as having a human form or human attributes ( anthropomorphic deities) 2 : ascribing human characteristics to nonhuman things ( anthropomorphic supernaturalism)

My Suggestions: 

My Suggestions ABSOLUTELY CRITICAL: Cite research and connect theory & practice to EACH artifact Make your first paragraph powerful (but maybe write this AFTER you address all AECT Standards!) Hire someone to proofread and edit
