Sara, I don't think we are old-school. I think we are ones who take pride in our work and do not rush as you stated just to get the job done. We want it done right.

Sara, the spelling you mention looks like what the kids in my classes do. I live in hope that they'll improve, but maybe not.

I remember when I was in elementary and jr. high we had lots of spelling tests on homonyms, synonyms and antonyms ....I do not remember my kids having that. I think we've gotten too close to "passing mandated state tests" and forgotten education frown

My word, even with the word "treaty" in front of some of the students they type "tready" ... sorry, but that's laziness. Proofing is too much trouble or something. It just makes me madder and madder LOL ... I gotta quit thinking about that stuff and go study now smile

To be fair, I think most standardized tests *do* test on synonyms and antonyms and so on. That seems to be a chunk of what they do their tests on.

I think again it's that in the past we only saw the writing of the top say 90% of the population, the best writers. Now we're seeing everyone and can see how the others do smile
