recently i got a job at pearson education scoring 9th grade expository essays. although some of the essays these students write floor me with their proficiency, the severe grammar and spelling errors i find in the majority of papers have led me to lose hope in the future generation of americans.
however, the other day, i came across a paper with so many ridiculous spelling errors that i just had to laugh, and i feel compelled to share this humor with the world at large. the following spelling errors occurred in ONE 15 line essay, and moreover, there were even more errors that i chose not to record (mainly because i’m technically bound to a confidentiality agreement that prevents me from sharing any information i come across in the scoring room with anyone else so i was trying to be very discrete about writing this shit down). i will provide ‘translations’ to these words in parentheses because some of them would be indecipherable without the context in which they were read.
