So, I guess you can tell what I will be talking about today, given the obvious mistakes in my title. You would not believe what some folks will turn in for me to grade. Today’s list was pretty unbelievable, so here are a few to whet your whistle:
“Staff being arguing about the room….No solutions is found…..” (this gal is a junior in college). What did she write?
Next, “The company I work for provides software that allow us or our clients to medically management their members.” That sounds painful!
After that, “With having so many varying areas leads to countless barriers in communication.” Oh, my, this student is writing about communication, but what did the individual actually say????
Another student shared, “This has been the only place of employment, that grew a passion to work with people and customers to reach a common goal.” Huh?????
Still another student wrote about her company, which has “many moving parts.” I am not sure what those parts could possibly be.
Folks, one way these students could improve their writing is to proofread everything before submitting it. These mistakes were not made on discussion boards, which are important but don’t really count for much of the final grade, these sentences came from formal documents that were discussing communication.
Have you ever written something you wish you could change? Have you ever read something that was muddy or unclear? I would love to hear your examples of mistakes you have read!
