Using Grammarly with Students
Many times when we grade our students writing we end up just reading the punctuation and grammar. We end up missing the actual content of what they are writing.
When turning in a final piece have them run their writing through Grammarly. They will then record their missed mistakes, and see what they missed and why.
Now you can focus on the writing and not the grammatical issues.
