Planning / Following the Basic Treehouse Guidelines
Preparing for Publication
Rylan was so excited to publish his treehouse that he didn't really go over it to check for errors. Though Rylan had a great treehouse to publish, because he had an enormous amount of spelling errors, some broken links and missing copyright information for his images, his page was initially returned to him to revise. Rylan was asked to correct as many spelling errors as possible, fix the broken links, and add copyright information for his images and then re-submit his page for publication. To fix his spelling mistakes, Rylan copied and pasted the text of his page into a MSWord document and used the spell check. He also printed out his page and read it over for mistakes, and asked a friend to proofread his work. After Rylan corrected his treehouse he re-submitted it for publication. This time it was approved right away.
