This is why I print out common comments on mailing labels and check off the ones that apply.
Those are the comments I put on the rubrik/scoring guide to check off. Especially the one that reads: ”More than 8 mechanical errors - Stopped reading: Please edit, reprint, and turn in no later than tomorrow.”
Good organization for you AND the students. Places labeled in the room for turning in work, finding and turning in late work, posting homework, a great folder system to keep track of work turned in and when it was turned in, etc., etc., etc.
The City of Minneapolis lit up the I-35W bridge and the Lowry bridge like this tonight in celebration of same-sex marriage being legalized in Minnesota today.

Introverts, in contrast, may have strong social skills and enjoy parties and business meetings, but after a while wish they were home in their pajamas. They prefer to devote their social energies to close friends, colleagues, and family. They listen more than they talk, think before they speak, and often feel as if they express themselves better in writing than in conversation. They tend to dislike conflict. Many have a horror of small talk, but enjoy deep discussions.
