A Proposal to Describe The Impact on Grammar and How Online Grammar Checkers Can Help Students With Self-Efficacy and Independence 


Research question: What was mine experience with grammar instruction and how it impacted my identity as a writer.

Methodology: Autoethnography 

Participants: Since it is an autoethnography, I am the subject of my inquiry.

Data (Layered Account): Vignettes, reflections, observations, and a comparative comparison of online grammar checkers.

Data collection: I have collected data on the various online grammar checkers and created a comparison chart.

Analysis: I will describe my experience and connect it to power dynamics in writing theory along with socio-political context. I will foreground my views in a critically reflexive manner.
