The Good Old Days

When I was in college, I had several professors who took proofreading very seriously. On finding your third typo, they would hand you paper back to you- ungraded. ONly one of them allowed a re-write.

The point was that you were supposed to care about your work.

I think if I did that, not only would my students flunk, but the dean would have a conniption-fit.

I bet some of them would proofread their papers, though.
