In small groups, have students develop a definition of “surface error.” Ask them to come up with its opposite term, too: “deep error”? “subsurface error”? “serious error”? What marks the difference between the terms? Which one do they need to pay more attention to? At which stage of drafting should they focus on one or the other? And what parts of the handbook will help them with both?
