Diagramming is still great for using I or we. I love Dennis Prager who says it’s one of his passions. Our local weekly newspaper apparently has no editor; the errors in it are astonishing. The previous one passed away about 12 years ago. Nothing got past him. Guess I missed my calling; errors leap out at me from just about every book I read. I think Dick Cheney’s autobio has been the only exception.
My husband’s daugher-in-law went to Catholic school. She said her 3rd grade class had 60 students and that it was a very orderly, mannerly classroom.
I’m really bad - I make corrections in books.if they are my own, right on the page, if the book is someone else’s or from the library I use post-it notes.
I spent 12 years in Catholic schools and through 4th grade we had between 50 and 60 in a class. It wasn’t until I was in HS was I ever in a class with less than 35, never mind less than 20 like some of my daughter’s classes have been.
As you mentioned to another poster, there are teachers who actually do teach, and teach properly. Alas, few ever hear of them. I have tried to make a point of letting the PTB know how I feel about the exceptional teachers my daughter has had, they deserve the credit. I also have found that by doing so, on the few occasions I have had a serious issue with a teacher my concern was not blown off.
I truly feel for teachers who are subjected to the type of parents, usually mothers, who will not accept the fact their precious angel is not all that.
