I've had two different students email me today, asking if they can turn in the draft they didn't turn in last week when I accept revisions from those who did turn them in, and need to revise, sometime next week.
Um...no. No. I do not take late papers. Period.
A revision takes maybe two minutes to grade. A first draft takes five, if it's nearly perfect; ten, if it's an A but the student's got a few issues to watch for for the next paper; fifteen if it's a B (with more feedback); and twenty or more for lower grades, depending on how bad they are.
To those two students: if you can't turn in work on time, don't ask a teacher whose stated policy is that they don't accept late papers to make an exception for you when they're grading revisions. A revision is different from a draft. I have no interest in bailing your stupid, lazy ass out.
And you will either learn quickly, or get a shit grade. I'd rather you either learned quickly--otherwise, DTFO.
