Attention, Grammar Police!

One of my pet peeves is people who use quotation marks inappropriately (I know--we should all have such problems), so I got a laugh out of this blog, which posts photos of signs and notes people have found with these kinds of errors. Some of them are pretty funny--and, English and Communication Studies faculty, this might be fun to use with your students!

I loved this! But just a thought--Some browsers and some operating systems may not be quite compatible with Blackboard. Sometimes quotation marks show up in Blackboard as little icons when I'm using my Mac (and Firefox). I tend to avoid their use for that reason.

Interesting--I didn't know that about how quotes work on Macs. It's always something!
