Zero Zone / Ground Zero (on the BOARD) [IlovePDF_ZeroZone, 16pp]

[Adrien Brody (Detachment, 2011. Director: Tony Kaye]

I have just started to copy on the BOARD those basic, typical mistakes students often make in exercises, examinations and writings. There will be a Zero Zone on the upper left side of the blackboard to remind them what they must not write again. I think I will leave the wrong expressions without the appropriate correct forms afterwards to oblige them to search and learn the right ones. Well, I will draw a cross out mark over the wrong expressions like this “Me brother isn’t coming”.
