I don't need to correct your responses. I'm not the one chastising others on what they write. I'd also like to point out I'm not the one claiming to have taught English for the past four years while writing like a third grade student. Secondly, there are papers in English 101 right? Therefore spelling and grammar is a factor right? Even though the professor may not actually teach how to form a proper sentence or how to spell words, students still learn if they make a mistake on a paper right? Correct me if I'm wrong but teaching does generally result in learning right? I think I just destroyed your argument. I find it a little humorous I had to actually break that down for you. You know, being a teacher and all. Must be a little degrading so I apologize.
I would like to say, you should try use capital letters more often. It would solidfy your "teaching" claims that much more.
you made a claim, so please back it up. you certainly did chastise my writing skills as being horribly written, so please point out the mistakes. i'm curious as to what constitutes horrible writing; otherwise, it would be, you know, just you making shit up because you don't have a leg to stand on. so please, point out the mistakes.
spelling and grammar, while a component of papers in terms of grading, is actually not supposed to be a primary concern of entry-level collegiate writing teaching. it's considered a secondary (if not tertiary) goal. i've never corrected a student's spelling or grammatical errors on a paper. what a waste of time. you clearly have no understand of the pedagogy of intro composition programs nor do you have any idea on how constructive learning works. if you honestly think pointing out a spelling mistake on a paper solves the problem, then you lack the most basic comprehension of learning and language acquisition theories. you should probably open up a scholarly journal before you try to pretend you know a smidgen of what the discourse you're engaging in is about. and, i'm still waiting for you to point out those errors; the number of errors in your posts keeps growing.
Nowhere in anything I've posted did I state spelling and grammar were "primary concerns" in an English 101 class. You felt you needed to correct LovernotFighter's title and point out his incorrect spelling and I replied, "Wow, I didn't know this was English 101." Which is what an instructor would do if his pupil submitted something ill-written and contained spelling errors....which is what you did. For a teacher, I'd expect you to be a lot smarter. Good effort though! Also, thanks for reading way too much into what I wrote and not taking it for what it actually said. Stellar performance, chief!
and, you should know that secondary and tertiary concerns are actual teaching terms... another instance of you being out of your league in a discussion you know nothing about. you don't usually address a secondary concern in a classroom, and you don't usually address a tertiary concern on a paper... which is why a seasoned instructor wouldn't actually comment on those errors on a paper (the larger issue would be that a student who made such glaring errors either didn't proofread his/her paper or did not belong in that class, which is why instructors are asked not to work on said mechanics). finally, you like to make these sweeping comments (horribly written, like a third-grader, not what i actually said), but you never actually support them with any evidence, and when you're pressed on them, you shift gears. didn't your 101 teacher talk about analytical arguments and evidence?
You seriously need to find a guy or some guys, get a little pickle tickle so you can calm down just a little. I really hope you find one. I can tell you're about to explode over there. It'll be alright
see, that's that last point i referenced where you get called out on your unfounded claims and create a straw man or ad hominem counter. glad you could help me point that out for you.
I'm really laughing at you right now. Probably with the rest of the readers on this forum. You truly are that lonely. Only someone who doesn't have sex on the regular would act like this. I really hope you get your chance to unwind....I really do!
