    student conducted

    Hi,

    Is the following paragraph correct?
    Students conducted dignity activities. They made a hand chain and helped the sweeper pick up the swappers.

    Re: student conducted

    Do you mean that the students demonstrated solidarity with the sweeper, showing that they respected his/her dignity by helping to pick up litter?
    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”

    What are "swappers"?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    He or she probably meant 'wrappers' or rubbish.
