Checker Challenge

0 0 105
Go over the material on grammar checkers in the handbook. Have students pay attention to the sentences that their word processor’s grammar checker flags. The challenge is to come in with a correct sentence the grammar checker thought was wrong. Students should use the handbook, comparing what the grammar checker flagged as wrong to the handbook definition.
