Unit 3: Assignment #3

I need an explanation for this Psychology question to help me study.

  1. Read Wilbers’ (2015) “Top [5] Reasons You Should Learn to Use Proper Grammar.”
  2. Learn when to use me, myself, and I correctly.
    1. Watch Ted-Ed’s (2015) video, “When to Use ‘Me,’ ‘Myself, and ‘I’.”
      • Remember that you can adjust the speed on this YouTube video (or any YouTube video) by following these directions.
      • Remember that you can access a transcript of this YouTube video (or any YouTube video) by following these directions.
    2. Read Grammar Girl’s (2007) article, “How to Use ‘Myself’ and Other Reflexive Pronouns.”
    3. Read Stevens’s (2012) article, “Grammar-Grouching on ‘Myself’ Misuse.”
    4. Test yourself on the Me/I or Myself Quiz. Re-take the Quiz again (and again) until you earn a perfect score.
  3. Learn when to use “you and I” versus “you and me.”
    1. Read Stevens’s (2012) article, “You and I and Lady Gaga’s Bad Grammar.”
    2. Read Grammar Girl’s (2007) article, “Between You and Me.”
    3. Because “you and I” and “you and me” are often used incorrectly in song lyrics (as Stevens’ and Grammar Girl’s articles note),
      • find four songs in which EITHER “you and I” OR “you and me” is used correctly in their lyrics AND
      • find four songs in which EITHER “you and I” OR “you and me” is used incorrectly in their lyrics.
  4. Read Gaertner-Johnston’s (2006) article, “Its? It’s? Or Its’?” Then find, on the Internet,
    1. four instances when someone has correctly used its,
    2. four instances when someone has correctly used it’s,
    3. four instances when someone has incorrectly used its, and
    4. four instances when someone has incorrectly used it’s.
    5. For all instances, be sure to write down or otherwise capture the sentence in which the usage of its or it’s occurred (and the URL where the instance occurred).
  5. Learn why it’s probably not a good idea to double space after a period.
    1. Read Manjoo’s (2011) article, “Space Invaders: Why You Should Never, Ever Use Two Spaces After a Period.
    2. Read Grammar Girl’s (2005) article, “Two Spaces After a Period.”
    3. Think about whether you were taught to double space after a period.
  6. Top off all your grammar learning by watching Pleated Jean’s (2013) YouTube, “Grammar Lessons with Food.
  7. Go to the Unit 3: Assignment #3 Discussion Board and create a new post in which you list
    1. how many times you needed to take the “Me/I or Myself Quiz” (it’s okay if it took you a few attempts; the point is to learn when to use “me” versus “I” versus “myself);
    2. the titles of the four songs you found that use either “you and I” or “you and me” correctly and the titles of the four songs you found that use either “you and I” or “you and me” incorrectly;
    3. the four instances you found on the Internet when someone used its correctly (you must embed a link to each instance) and the four instances you found on the Internet when someone used it’s correctly (embed a link to each instance);
    4. the four instances you found on the Internet (and their context) when someone used its incorrectly (embed a link to each instance) and the four instances you found on the Internet (and their context) when someone used it’s incorrectly (embed a link to each instance);
    5. whether you were taught to double space after a period and, if so, whether you’re surprised to learn that you shouldn’t double space after a period; if you were not taught to double space after a period, whether you’ve wondered why other people (erroneously) double space after a period; and
    6. which grammar lesson provided in Pleated Jean’s video you were the least familiar with before watching the video.
