Chalk Talk: Crossing the I's and Dotting the T's
In a day when one can type in an address without capital letters or find information about a topic, even if it is misspelled, proper grammar skills are still important. When completing a state exam, college entrance tests, or applying for a job, one must have perfect grammar to be successful. Therefore, these skills must be taught and mastered. A student or graduate does not always have the convenience of a computer with spell check or similar conveniences. It is during those times when personal knowledge of English conventions cannot be substituted. Students need to know that a sentence and proper noun begins with a capital letter, regardless to the fact that most email addresses are written with a small letters and are case sensitive. They must not forget to place a period at the end of a statement and a question mark at the end of a question, even while they may put them in the middle of a web address. Correct grammar is still mandatory and mastery of it a must.
