A couple of weeks ago, C. told me that on the Identifying Sentence Errors portion of SAT writing, sentences pertaining to minorities are error free. The correct choice is always E.
Darned if I haven't seen the same thing ever since he pointed it out.
Then today C. missed an answer because the sentence was about minorities and had an error.
"I used my rule," he said, "and it was wrong."
Starting this week, I am going to re-direct his attention to dangling participles, subject-verb agreement, pronoun antecedent agreement, tense consistency, parallelism, and idiomatic usage, among other things.
If that's possible.
