You must use proper grammar already taught, with spelling, capitalization, and punctuation. It is your responsibility to either ask if you forgot, or look up the rule to be sure. Minus 2 points for every spelling, capitalized either not or is when shouldn't be, and punctuation error. If you use quotation marks properly, I will add 2 bonus points each time.
