What I'm looking for is not excellence, but improvement.
I will have to find a way to promote this site.
It's not really true improvement if the intentionally write below their ability, because they aren't improving themselves as a writer and as a student...they are just improving on one paper that gives the professor (Dhampy) a false impression of where they really stand in terms of writing ability, critical thinking, etc. It's only a perceived improvement, not true, relevant improvement.
Yes. That is the opportunity I have given them, which they didn't take advantage of.
