  1. Would it really? I think content outweighs form every time. I have students who have the worst time with grammar and conventions, but are able to express themselves deeply and meaningfully. Of course, grammar is important to be polished and worked on, but teaching rote grammar, in my six years of teaching, has not drastically improved student writing because students tend to separate grammar from writing–which is antithetical to the entire reason why we teach grammar.

  2. This is so true. Grammer is one of the most important parts of English. Without it, after all, English would be almost entirely illegible.
