I'm wondering what you guys issue detentions for. I have been "threatening" to issue detentions for students who don't write complete sentences, or use correct grammar. Since I have first told my students about my new rule (detentions for not writing correctly), they have magically become really great writers. I am just so sick of the sloppiness. I am a language arts tutor, and I feel like I am not doing my job if I don't enforce conventional writing when they have been asked to so.
