    I know that it is not a quick fix,(I've come to the conclusion that there isn't one)but you just have to be persistent and consistent in all subject areas. I correct for punctuation and capitals in all subject areas. It is frustrating, but I think it's just one of those things where you just have to "out stubborn" them. I also have grammar workbook and sheets that I use, as well as guided reading direction. Some kids get it and some don't. I've even had kids stay in and write lines if I find a certain amount of simple errors in their writing. This has been successful with some, but it's not something I like to do. I used to teach grade 6 and had the same problem. Good luck to your friend.
