I am always on the lookout for creative and insightful comments to make on student papers. This has to be one of the best ever!
A good rule of thumb for essays (on viewing sheets or exams) is called the ‘mini-skirt’ rule–they should be long enough to cover what needs to be covered and short enough to be interesting. For many of you, your essays were more comparable to an ‘elderly, overweight man in a Speedo’–your essays were way too short, didn’t cover much at all, and some were just sad and pathetic.
Of course, many of the essays I see are more like a seventeenth-century woman in a formal gown with multiple petticoats and a jacket.
