It can be infuriating to hear this. Let’s bullet-proof our writing!
Some members of the public love to point out teachers’ spelling and grammar errors on report cards, correspondence, or newsletters. No professional group is scrutinized as closely. In this light-hearted workshop, teachers anonymously test their surface grammar prowess, briefly refresh their ability to write standard Canadian English and observe a formatting style, and learn about powerful print and software tools that can improve their observance of the mechanics of writing. Even if you are confident of your spelling and grammar prowess, this workshop will help you refresh your knowledge of the conventions. (2 hours)
