Prairie View

I've been trying to impress upon my composition class students the need to proofread carefully and ask other people to proofread their papers before they hand them in. I want them to be able to use all the resources at their disposal, and family and friends are, among other things, valuable resources. For the last essay, I asked each student to write on the back page the name of everyone who proofread the essay. Here are some of the answers:

Tim (son of Richard and Susan): Mom, Susan Yoder, Mother
Kevin: Kevin
Jared: My maternal parent
Kenneth: Mathew

I think Kevin is afraid he's in trouble.
