Lesson About Using Spell and Grammar Check

Logo for Lesson About Using Spell and Grammar Check
Too often, business students feel that running the "Spelling and Grammar check" feature on Microsoft Word is sufficient to ensure good writing.The professor used several poor writing examples at this site and had students submit them to Spell and Grammar check, and they passed. It was used to demonstrate the need to do more than rely on Spell and Grammar check for papers.

The author states that Lesson About Using Spell and Grammar Check resource is targeted towards students in grade levels K – 12. I believe that it is useful for college level students, as well. Unfortunately, many college level students rely on Microsoft’s spell and grammar check features exclusively to identify and correct a range of writing errors. While Microsoft applications do a fairly good job of catching a few common errors, it is also notorious for overlooking otherwise glaring errors that detract from students’ and other authors’ works.

Disorganised content at varying levels; useful for teacher background, and to refer students to examples.

I highly recommend this article to all teachers and students. First, it shows that academic writing, and proper sentence structure as well as grammar needs to be learned. Secondly, this article points to the limitations of over reliance on computer software/programs to write no matter how perfect they might appear to be.

I have always alerted my students to the fact that they should not depend on any computer program for all of their academic work. They should endeavor to learn the tenets of proper grammer and writing styles so as to become less dependent on MS spellchecker programs. In my view this is a good wake-up call to all students.
