Grading Essays

IMAGINE READING THE same 10 pages of a novel 25 times. Then imagine picking a new 10 page section and reading it 25 times. Then imagine that the novel isn't particularly well written.

Welcome to my life.

OK, I'm being a bit unfair with the 'not well written' swipe, but grading essay after essay can be exhausting at times. The topics this week: 1) and analysis of FDR's New Deal, and 2) an analysis of European de-colonization after WWII. If I'm being really fair I should also mention that this set of essays are actually quite good. Well done mes élèves.

But I'm ready for the Christmas break.
