Using #GrammarFails to Hook Students in English Class

Use #GrammarFail examples to emphasize the importance of #English class


Pin It

Whenever I come across an error in spelling, grammar, mechanics, or usage in public, I cringe. It's one thing to see it on students' papers, but when businesses and other professionals make these mistakes...well, shouldn't they know better?

Showing your students these real-world mistakes (and having them correct them AND go out and find their own examples) strengthens our argument that English class IS important (because who hasn't heard the moans and groans from students about having to take English EVERY year?).

I keep a Pinterest Grammar Errors board (but it covers all kinds of errors) and I also have a presentation on TpT that can be shown to your class any time (just skip the back-to-school introduction and go straight to the 70+ slides with examples).

Here are some favorites I just came across from The Grammar Gendarme:

You know those students who just ignore those red squiggley lines in their document and go ahead and hit "Print" anyway? Ya. This is their future. At Wal-Mart.

  19. These types of grammar fails are entertaining and may help you get the attention of English students. But for better personal focus, I prefer taking in my daily does of CBD like this one at Gold Bee. to keep my mind active for any lessons I may need to go through. The most commonly encountered CBDs include cannabidiol and cannabinol. When using CBDs, the user experiences a calming, ameliorating effect that is reported by many users. Other possible effects include anti-inflammatory properties and some researchers believe that it may act as a neuroregulator.
