I'm at school and I wrote a very long paper. However, the teacher returned it to me the day I turned it in, claiming I should make "corrections". I feel as though she only said that because she doesn't understand. I used the word "populace" instead of "population" and she marked it as a spelling error. I also used grammar in such a manner that is correct and technical, but she didn't understand and put it as wrong. Should I try and discuss this with the teacher, or should I make changes that are against how I wanted it just to try and get a good grade? Also, some of the "corrections" the teacher wanted me to make are incorrect.Note: "(w:subprime mortgage)" is the source reference.Note 2: Cursive bracketed words were selected/circled/scratched out by teacher in red ink and bracketed words are the teacher's notes on the word in cursive brackets.Here is one example of many.Me: "Then in 2006 the housing market shot up and people with adjustable rate mortgages (80% of the American populace) were unable to pay their mortgages (w:subprime mortgage)."Teacher's Note: "{Then} [incinuates that something comes next. But 2006 is before 2007.] in 2006 the housing market shot up and people with adjustable rate mortgages {(} ["and", remove parenthesis] 80% of the American popula{ce}[tion]{)} [remove parenthesis] were unable to pay their mortgages (w:subprime mortgage crisis).

I don't see anything wrong with the corrections. Except that the subprime mortgage crisis started in 2008 not 06. The mortgages were avail in 06, but it wasn't much of a crisis until the bubble popped since everyone was ballin'.Octocamo;384433 wrote:

The teacher's right, especially if you're saying "Then yada yada" after talking about something that occurred after what you're about to say.
