Amplify Errors to Minimize Them
Stewart, Maria Shine
Teaching English in the Two-Year College, v36 n3 p291-293 Mar 2009
In this article, the author offers her experience of modeling mistakes and writing spontaneously in the computer classroom to get students' attention and elicit their editorial response. She describes how she taught her class about major sentence errors--comma splices, run-ons, and fragments--through her Sentence Meditation exercise, a rendition of what happens when punctuation is misplaced or lacking and when ideas are not fully formed.
