Cookie Monster

We received our essays in class tonight.

Most of the class was shocked with their grades.

Mind you, most of the class is fresh out of High School.

M. has offered us the opportunity of a re-write. I'm going to accept - not because I'm hell-bent on getting an "A", but I'm fascinated to learn what it takes to get one.

What was your essay about? How did you do the first go? Good luck with the re-write.

You speak of the topic, but evade disclosing the grade? My comments shadow nolikeysushi.

If you get the "A" on the re-write, would it be a topic that interests us Bloggers? If so, I'd read it if posted, despite the length. You have a way with words that are both intelligent and engaging, so I would think your essay writing would be similiar.

if you didn't get an A, what did you get

I'm sure that she made both general and specific comments, so you some some idea what to work on. I know this dates me, but in my day, A's were very, very hard to come by. I sure didn't get a whole slew of them.

It's always good to take an opportunity to improve. What the hell!

Thanks for dropping by my place and leaving a greeting!

The work on essays sounds like fun! I love opportunities to learn to write better.

You make me laugh.

One of the comments I've made abou the other students in my class is an observation of their focus on the "grade" before the "education". My grade was quite passable and I could accept it, but I could also learn how to write a BETTER paper and in the process increase my grade. See the difference? Prioritizing grades before the learning is kind of "cart before the horse" to my way of thinking.
