I didn't mean to imply that we as teachers should ignore spelling and
grammar, but I know what a challenge it is for children who grow up in homes with
family members who are functionally illiterate or speak a different language.
Language arts teachers are challenged to bridge the gaps in the best way they
can. We should certainly correct errors whenever possible, but I would be in
trouble without "spellchecker". It could be worse, have you ever read anything
written by George Washington in the original? There wasn't any standardized
spelling until the 1800's.
