Basic Writing Skills




































This unit is a quick review of all the things you should have learned by the time you enter 7th grade. In fact, some of the most common mistakes that I see every year are things that you should have learned in first or second grade.

So stop making excuses. This is the year that you're going to "level up." This is the year that you're going to start paying attention to the difference between your and you're, and there and their, and this year, you're going to start each sentence with a capital letter and end each sentence with a period.

And the sooner you develop these good writing habits, the better. Because now you've been warned: If you continue to make these sorts of mistakes, you're going to earn half points, at best, for anything you write.
