grading for the first time (college edition)





my foto essay – firenze, c. 2008

it’s days like these that i miss traveling around. the river looks really brown because it had rained a lot before we got there.

i finished my first stack of grading as a TA, and how do i feel? relieved. i think i graded a bit too harsh, but as long as i included good feedback, i guess? it was just an eye opener for sure.

things to do before turning in your assignment:

  • if you’re turning in written work, write on college ruled paper – not wide ruled
  • write in complete sentences
  • answer the question
  • follow the assignment, follow directions
  • support your argument

it was interesting to see how much the above mentioned didn’t happen.
