"Africa is, indeed, coming into fashion." - Horace Walpole (1774)



This is the time of year when I need sites like Rate Your Students to keep me sane. Every year I think I can't hear any stupider excuses or lazy questions, and every year I'm proven wrong. Anyway, I laughed and laughed at this particular post on grading, particularly point number one:

"You know that saying about the million monkeys at the typewriters? They may or may not ever write Shakespeare, but I bet they’d manage to start a new paragraph every so often. How the [bleep] do you go twelve pages without indenting at least once in a while?"

So true. So, so true.
