    Hiding a few 4 letter words in the middle of my Eng Comp taught me they do read it sometimes.

    Back when they still used to mark off for spelling (because they knew how to spell — ah, the good old days) there was a less drastic way to make sure they were paying attention.

    Lewreader, I hid a comment (something about doubting the teacher ever read the homework) in the middle of an English assignment. Yup, she read it. Yup, I got in trouble.

    The sister of one of my best friends is a teacher. I had to teach her the difference between “your” and “you’re” as well as “their”, “they’re” and “there.”
    Also, too many people try to use an apostrophe for plural when it is a possessive or contraction.

    I wrote a marketing paper in B-school based on the Ferengi Rules of Acquisition, the Ferengi being straw-man Capitalists from Star Trek. I advocated several their views in relation to the course got an A on that paper. What’s hilarious was the professor announced to the class my paper was one of the most creative and well-written she’d read.

    I read everything my student submit. I may not change their points (because except for the four major papers and final exam, their work is more writing exercise-related). My students find this out the next day when I begin a lecture on why this isn’t a high school class and they shouldn’t expect it to be what they’ve had before.

    Is your native tongue one of the Slavic languages, Niki? I noted some key grammatical errors of the type suggestive of a slavic first language.

    Nope… just a typo. That tends to happen when I’m on Benadryl. I’m actually a lifelong Missouri resident, former spelling bee champ, and an English writing teacher.
