No, commas are not added like salt and pepper (to taste)

I'm teaching a humanities course at an open-admission college. The students are extremely poor writers, and have almost zero knowledge of English grammar. This semester, I want to help them avoid comma splices, since that's one of the top three issues I see in their papers (spelling errors and sentence fragments being the other two). Can you help me design a lesson/activity to help them? [more inside]

Teaching English/ESL Online?

Teaching English Online? So I hear about people making okay money teaching English online through Skype or Google Chat, etc and taking payments through PayPal. Anyone have experience with this?

Being better in teaching

I want to make this short and excuse my uneasy temperment. I'm in Korea teaching English. Teaching for almost a month to be exact. No background in teaching nor attending a seminar for ESL teaching. It's very hard since I'm doing this in the middle of the last school semester. I don't know what to do to be honest. I speak Korean and this is a menace. They have huge expectations about me as I can speak both languages. I need to improve my teaching skills overall ASAP. But what to do?

What alternative routes to teacher certification can I take as a person who already has a Masters in Education?

I have a Masters and certification in Early Childhood. Now I'd like to work as a special educator. Seems the only way to get there is another Masters in Special Ed. I'd like to find a way to do this cheaply and quickly. I have looked into Teaching Fellows and similar programs, and all specifically require that applicants have no background in teaching.

Colors not to wear in the classroom.

Is there data supporting the claim that wearing the color red is a bad choice for teachers in the sense that it negatively affects a student's attention, comfort level, etc.? I know a college professor that never wears red because of this. If so, are there other colors good-or-bad to wear? Can I blame my 6360 angstrom magenta cable-knit sweater on the Is-This-Gonna-Be-On-The-Test day I've been having in my class? Would a brown leg bandanna make my students own the quadratic formula?
