etc.


You are free to make as many changes as you wish. Just remember to number each change (and indicate the part of speech) so it is clear to everyone where we are on the list.

Good try, both of you.

Jaquelyn, I'm not sure why you moved the adjective to beginning of the sentence. Also, "rigorous" is not an adverb.

Logan, the direct object is "homework"; the indirect object is "student". Remember, the indirect object is the person to whom the action is directed.
