Day 346 – Seeing Red

I LOVE marking university papers with red pen.

I love it.

It feels aggressive.  Authoritative.  In your face!

But…

It’s also helpful.  Guiding.  Celebratory.

Particularly when I can point out that a student has done something exemplary.

 

 

Exemplary is a good word.

I think I’ll go back to marking now.

Hope that I find the perfect term paper to write exemplary on.
