You Caught Me #edtech

Some of my more astute readers caught some rather embarrassing misspellings in my post from Saturday night.  I'll admit feeling rushed and more than a bit tired, but, that's still no excuse for such sloppy writing.  On the other hand, I was not an English major and I always struggled with sentence diagrams in grade school.  So where is a geek like me supposed to turn in these situations?  Perhaps, Grammar Check?  With a simple copy and paste of your text  Grammar Check will run it through an analysis. So, what kind of job does Grammar Check do? See the text below for the original post before I ran it through Grammar Check.  No more late night mistakes for me!  It's always nice to have a second set of eyes (even if they are computer programs) looking over your work.  I'd be interested to hear from the English teachers on this one.  Does Grammar Check hit the mark? See if you can spot the mistakes.
