  1. The 2nd photo it should be “if there was ever a place.”

    Picture #2: At Pan you will find a class that fits YOUR, instead of ” you,” needs.

  3. Kevin Johnson on said:

    Place is spelled incorrectly in the second photo.

  4. On the last photo, it should be ‘A’ professor not ‘An’ professor

  5. Good job, guys! But there’s still one error that no one has yet spotted. Hint: It’s in the first pic … and you’ll kick yourself for not noticing it once you finally see it.

  6. Oh, yeah .. you each get 2 points extra credit.

  7. Picture 1 : The comma should be placed like so, “people working in the garden, but garden plants too.” (1 error)

    Picture 2: “every” should be ever, and pleace should to “place”. Also instead of the “-” there should be a comma. “you needs.” should be “your needs.” (3 errors)

    Picture 3: “An professor” should be A professor. (1 error)

    • Let me correct myself.

      Picture 2: “every” should be ever, and “pleace” should to place. Also, instead of the “-” there should be a comma. Lastly, “you needs.” should be “your needs.” (4 errors)

      • Some other folks had already spotted some of these, but I’ll give you 2 points extra credit for noticing that “every” should be “ever.”

  8. Is it “effect” instead of “affect?”

  9. Isadora Busch on said:

    On the 1st picture, comma is misplaced on first paragraph:
    “Heat waves affect not only people working in the garden, but garden plants too.”

  10. Paolo Barrios on said:

    In the first pic, where it says “name here,” I am assuming that the author’s name should be in that place

  11. On the first picture, “Name Here.” I hope they put a name there.
