to strike or not to strike?

You mentioned in class that we should not strike out too much of the original text, but savage passages with corrections. You also said that we can use your marks on test #1 to guide us along. I noticed that you did strike out sentences and paragraphs from the text on test #1. So, can I also strike out similar sentences and paragraphs as shown on test #1, or should I just focus on correcting the grammar and puntuations and leave the content alone?

As I said in class, you may feel that you can save that paragraph by editing it carefully. If you do, please feel free to try.

Striking it out improved the letter for me, but I would prefer your trying to edit it.
