Teaching Tip #21

Most colleges are in finals or in the last week of classes. And I see a lot of frantic instructors at my college with foot-high stacks of papers/essays to grade. Why? Final exams should be easy to grade, easy to post, and a short step before adding them up to turn them in.

Make sure your major presentations/research papers are due two weeks before finals. The students will prefer it and you won't be stressed during the finals. Also, if your institution is like mine, there are all sorts of reports to get finished at the end of the semester. And it's Christmas!
