Okay, I'm sorry. If your review of book X shows a 5th grade grasp of grammar, I won't believe you read the book. I just can't see past the issues of subject-verb agreement, misplaced commas, and a complete lack of compound sentences.

If that sounds like your writing, try again.

They should really teach grammar in school. Oh, wait: they do!

Re: there, they're, their

is the maryland writing test a recent thing? i'm just curious, as i grew up in maryland and don't recall having to do it; but then, i graduated from high school almost 10 years ago, and have largely tried to repress most of my related memories.

apostrophe abuse has to be my biggest grammatical peeve. sometimes i think that if i see one more "'s" tacked on to a word that's meant to be plural, i might just crack.

I graduated about the same time and took it 9th grade. Reading, Math and Citzenship were the other "Maryland" tests. Some people took the test different years, especially the Citzenship test. Most people I know took it in 10th grade, but we did it in 9th at my school (in Montgomery County).
