Things Students Write
I’m grading papers for a high school teacher and I’m coming across some stuff that is just too funny to keep to myself. I will share with you. :) These are direct quotes from their papers; I’ve maintained their anonymity. Therefore, there will be grammar and punctuation errors. I have added comments which I’ve italicized.
“a lot of people say [my mom] look mean . . . even though she’s not, I think its just the makeup.” Wow! That must be some extreme makeup!
“kids back in her days were wearing some weird stuff like parachute pants and bellbottoms.” Those are definitely not the weirdest things from that time.
“He had a great relashinip with her but didn’t like how it was going.” It was a great relationship, but going badly??? Interesting.
“He also got to know that His bio dad lifts his bio mom.” Does he lift her on a daily basis?
“[My grandpa] is an ant small but strong, he would always help carry the big things . . . ” Ants, like your grandpa, typically are very strong and they do carry things which are many times their own weight.
“To see Teja . . . is to first notice her eyes, placed right above the center of her face.” Isn’t this a normal spot for eyes to be?
“Teenager who can kill must be way more mature than an average teenager as if they’re an adult.” Yea, because killing is totally what determines a person’s maturity.
“The solutions is let your teen experience life but keep the bad things away and harm them.” Please, harm your teenagers!
“Teens like to kill people, because they play lots of videogames.” Video games are the absolute sole cause of murderous teens, mental instability has nothing to do with it.
“Teens should be having fun, going out to parties not killing people.” This is an important lesson teens, don’t kill people, have fun instead.
“Success to Mayra means if you’re out there with a real job not selling yourself for your money then you’re pretty successful.” So, as long as you aren’t a prostitute, you are successful.
“The most motivation that she has is to get money save money and then when you need it, it’s going to be right there for you to waste.” Save your money so you can waste it, don’t be responsible with it, ever.
