Today, in the class I'm teaching, I assigned my students an essay to complete for homework. One student asked me if I was deducting points for bad spelling. I teach English. FML

  • I think that's a fair question depending on the class and what kind of teacher you are.

    Because if the point if the essay was say, structure. You might take the pressure off of them by forgiving a few spelling errors.

    I know I had teachers in high school that delayed whole exams by a week because the class as a collective didn't feel prepared and wanted more time to study.

  • If it's a typed essay, there's really no excuse for spelling errors.
