My first year students have a short assignment due tomorrow, just a really basic couple of pages of writing that will build into their first real assignment.
So this evening I've answered a number of emails asking for direction about things like where to put the page number.
I love that they're trying so hard. They really want to do things well, you know. I hope I can somehow keep that feeling strong in them and combine it with the confidence to put the page number wherever the heck they want.
