I got my first real set of first year writing class essays on Friday, so I pulled out the pile and started in on the top one.
I marked it way more than I should have. I need a couple stamps: "Support your assertion." "Why do you think so?" "Is this your idea, or someone else's?" "How does this paragraph relate to your thesis?"
Then I also need one that says "Cite your source!"
It's really hard to pick up the second paper when you've just put a one-legged A on the first.
I bet if someone came up with a set of writing response stamps, they'd make a fortu... Hmmm, what other stamps should I make?
