i have been swamped with schoolwork

grading papers and the like. this leads me to gripe up here. i know i don't follow all grammar rules here, but you have to take into account the reason you are writing. for work or school, you write correctly. bottom line.

i am shocked at how many college students, especially seniors, do not understand basic rules about grammar and punctuation.

no matter how many times i tell them [and i do tell them!], students refuse to put the punctuation mark inside the quotation marks. example: sentence." or question?"

it is NOT: words".
