Tuesday Spelling Lesson

Filed under: spelling — youfailcollege @ 9:01 am

disscussions = discussions

encorporate = incorporate

expectually = especially…. I know that I recently featured “expesilly” (or something) in a post dedicated to one student’s comment, but I felt this was a fun spelling of “especially” as well.

paitent = patient, this is like a typo, but with pen.

perfesional = professional, or “personal” mixed with “professional.” Like I said recently, I like combining words.

accomidate = accommodate

cirriculum = curriculum, did no one ever teach you that a “c” before “e” or “i” makes an “s” sound?

espically = especially

intresting = interesting, though I suppose that’s how we pronounce it, sometimes.

scenerios = scenarios, say it like a British person: scen-AHHHH-rios

Tuesday Spelling Lesson Week 3

Filed under: spelling — youfailcollege @ 11:30 am

balenced = balanced 

chalanged = challenged (I see a pattern…)

coures = course… this one is the kind of thing I would expect to see type-written (silly, little typos), however it was hand-written.

handel = handle… unless you’re talking about the composer, but since you weren’t….

illitrations = at first I thought “illustrations,” but now I’m not sure that it isn’t “alliterations.”

“The inside papers were very helpful in writting the major paper.”

They were insight papers. And…

writting = writing… seriously people.

Check your email for new words

“Email! Instructor needs to check email more often. Many emails were sent that were not responded to that were time sensitative. It is frustrating to not have a response, expesilly when students are held to the expectation to check school e-mail, so should the instructor.”

“Sensitative,” I kind of like it. It’s like “sensitive” and “meditative” combined, and I like combining words.

“Expesilly” is just silly, though.

aplication = application

flexability = flexibility

irrelavant/irrelevent/irelivent = irrelevant

straied = strayed

thogh = I’m not sure. I would think “though,” but “that” seems better in context.

I’m scared for the future

“Dont get sidetracked. Focused more on material.”

First off, where is the apostrophe in “Dont?” Second, the way the second sentence is written is just… I don’t know… wrong.

Wait, what?

I honestly don’t know where to begin with this one.

“I understand why Prof. XXXXX shared many of his perspectives. But I feel like it students are not gripping the point and tunning out than the point of students grasping and learning are unachievable.”

Please, sir, may I have some more?

“More grade opportunities other than just tests, attendence, participation, quizzes, and weekly homework assignments”

That sounds like a lot of grade opportunities to me! And, BTDubs, it’s “attendance.”
