"Fire Your Proofreader!" Grammar Correction in the Writing Classroom
Shin, Sang-Keun
ELT Journal, v62 n4 p358-365 Oct 2008
This article critically reviews the usefulness of grammar correction in second language writing instruction through the eyes of five second-language writers. It first examines the validity of four teaching principles that appear to influence how writing instructors approach error correction in classrooms and concludes with discussions as to why grammar correction is necessary for second-language writers.
