Not only have I written step-by-step instructions on how to write each paper (as well as what-all goes into a well-structured, well-developed paper), but I also have written a sample paper for each chapter.
So far, I've graded three papers. Judging by what I've seen, not a single damn one of the first three read the chapter, used the organization worksheet, or even so much as glanced at the sample essay.
I am sick of stupid. I'm probably going to have a nasty cold or something after having graded these things.
