How appropriate for this season of grading. Once I actually sit down and start reading the papers, it's not so bad. But the problem is making myself sit down to them. At least I know that others also go to great lengths to put off grading. I even vacuumed up the dog hair for an hour last night. It's almost worse because I have over a week before I have to have the papers graded (to hand back at the final exam). From the viewpoint of today, sure, doing 5 or 6 papers a day doesn't seem so bad. But will I have the discipline? or will I wind up staying up late the night before the exam growling under my breath at myself and my students? tune in later and see...
