Celeb Grammar Cops

Additionally, this weeks learning path contained a video about Brazilian children visiting their idols twitter feeds. Within these feeds, children not only saw slang and bad grammar but also simple spelling errors. These children then wrote on the feed, correcting their idols punctuation and spelling. I think that this is wonderful. Not only are children demonstrating that they know what is right and wrong in terms of punctuation, spelling and grammar but they are able to tell others about it, rather than continue the bad habits into their own writing. This would be a wonderful activity to complete with upper primary and middle years students, who look up to many idols and use technology regularly. In order to see this video click here.
