Overview of chat topic

Quick overview of each question from the chat:

  • 1 – Introduce yourself. Have you ever gotten a work email with spelling/grammar mistakes? How did you react?

  • 2 – What ELA skills do you find yourself using the most at your job(s)?

  • 3 – What ELA skills do you think our students need to learn before they graduate?

  • 4 – How are you helping teach those skills to your students while staying inside your subject area?

  • 5 – How are you effectively demonstrating those skills to your students?

  • 6 – Do you use writing as a punishment (essays, sentences, words, lines, etc.)?

  • 7 – How can you specifically alter your lessons next school year to teach some of these “real life” ELA skills?

  • 8 – Do you show your writing to your classes? Do you write in real time on SmartBoards, etc.?

  • 9 – Do you think it’s important for your students to see you make “real-world” writing mistakes (as long as you correct them)?

  • 10 – Do you have a policy/reward system in place for when a student catches a typo/grammar mistake you’ve made?
