Good video to show your students before reminding them that (1) spell check and grammar check are on their computers for a reason and (2) using spell check and grammar check is not an excuse for neglecting to manually PROOFREAD the paper BEFORE turning it in. After all, the professor is smarter than your computer and you WILL catch the mistakes that spell check and grammar check happen to overlook and mark down the paper accordingly . . . [dismounting from soap box] . . . Anyway, good luck with your class!

They liked it. I also had a speaker from the writing center come in to strongly hint that they should have someone who's qualified to do so look over their papers before turning them in.

Believe me, this instructor doesn't take any crap on research papers. Thank goodness I have a TA to handle most of the madness this time around.

Glad to hear your class went well! With a writing center, a T.A., AND the professor at their disposal, your students really don't have any excuses for not getting this right.
