Is it ever a good teaching tool to use a student's writing as a class grammar and spelling lesson?
My son's 5th grade teacher used a paragraph from his writing. It was anonymous, but my son recognized it as his. Other students laughed at his mistakes. He came home and cried.
Not a good way to build confidence for a kid who is already very sensitive about his spelling problem.
I like his teacher personally. And she has been teaching long enough to know better, I would think. I don't know what she was thinking. Was she just lazy and didn't want to make up her own error-ridden paragraph for students to correct?
My SO is furious. So it is up to me to contact the teacher.
