freshmen and their anxieties

Why, oh why, do students assume that their instructors live to grade/review/comment on their papers?

I’m going to have to set some boundaries this semester. I may have a class filled with A-type overachievers, but I don’t need to feel like an overworked high school teacher. One conference, one review. Follow my advice and revise, or take the grade you earned. No more.
