Word Crimes

You may recall, in my post about Take-off Poems, that I use Weird Al Yankovic parodies to help my students understand many literary techniques. In his latest video, Word Crimes, Al addresses the common grammar and spelling mistakes we see on social media (among other places). It's FANTASTIC!

I will DEFINITELY be using this in my classroom!
