Everyone in college hates writing those pesky term papers. That is why most of the time students buy, borrow, or steal their term papers instead. Plagiarism is now so common that if teachers flunked every student who did it, we’d have a handful of students left. On the rare occasions a student decides to actually write their own paper, they say it takes them into the wee hours of the morning to complete.
Little do we know, teachers hate grading term papers as much as students hates writing them. Teachers say it can easily take up to 15 hours to mark all their students’ papers and most of the time their students just put some words together and call it good. They don’t even want to mention their students’ horrendous grammar.
Then when the student gets back their paper they see that their teachers’ comments are insulting, cruel, biased, or even a joke! When in reality, the teachers’ comments on the paper are just the opposite because teachers do not have enough time (or get paid enough) to insult each and every one of their students. However, not all students find their teachers’ comments insulting and these are the students who still write their own papers and care about their GPAs, but those are very few to come by now.
Why are both students and teachers hate term papers? That question is easy to answer, to be honest. Students hate writing them because they truly do not know how to write anymore. We can thank texting, instant messaging, and the entire electronic industry for that. Students are caught up in their text lingo that they do not know how to properly form a complete sentence. Yes, that is sad to say, but it is 100% true. When they are in English class they think writing in text talk is acceptable, which in return makes the teachers dread grading papers because the students are not putting what he or she taught them to good use. I don’t blame them for hating the paper grading part because I would too.
When you were in school did you hate writing papers too?
