Holy freakin' cow!
Now, remember, I teach 6th grade and capitalization has been taught to these kids. I even did a unit on capitalization at the beginning of the year. I am totally convinced this is a result of laziness. After my 4th and 5th hour class submitted their final papers I checked the same reports and there were a lot of capitalization errors. So I warned my 6th and 7th hour classes and they had even more errors!! I even warned them!
Now, there were other errors that all fall under editing. I OBVIOUSLY need to back up and see what is going on here.
So, here are my thoughts...
-Review basic capitalization, spelling and word usage
-Identify what is going on/missing
-Keep reviewing these concepts and identifying mistakes
If you have any other ideas, please let me know.
I created 4 Christmas Editing Cards that each have 8 Christmas related sentences on them. On Monday I am going to have my students edit these sentences and rewrite each one. Hopefully I can begin to figure out what is going on.
