As teachers, we share our knowledge of grammar with our students and enforce our tips and tricks to help build the skills of future writers or just future communicators. In a perfect world, our own writing would always be flawless and perfectly written without spelling or grammatical errors setting the perfect example for our students. However, there is just one tiny problem. We are human and we make mistakes.
There is nothing wrong with being human. Most of us teachers are and it is definitely 100% OK to forget when to put in a comma or to continue, throughout adulthood, to say, “B-E-A-U-tiful” in your head each time you need to spell the word. English can be tricky sometimes!
So now that we have established that we are human, we can accept help. The best help that I have found to keep Grammar flawless when writing texts online is from Grammarly. Grammarly is an extension that can be added to your browser. It will help you with your spelling and grammar when typing in text boxes online like in Facebook comments, in FeedbackPanda and in your Feedback submission window in the classroom. I even used it to write this post. Here is how it works and looks when using Grammarly with FeedbackPanda.
