AutoCorrect Customization

posted: 12.17.07 by Barclay Barrios

Microsoft Word’s AutoCorrect feature can correct errors as you type them. What’s more, students can customize this tool to focus on errors they typically make. Ask students to customize AutoCorrect by going to Tools > AutoCorrect Options > AutoCorrect; have them add in spelling or typing errors they tend to make in their drafts. Alternatively, challenge students to turn this feature off completely, forcing them to proofread more carefully.
