@mattuzzi You can tell by their writing. They start out their papers trying to be profound, trying to actually "say" something, but it comes across as a muddled mess about 80% of the time. And if they're trying that hard to find meaning and use whatever ten-dollar words they've accumulated up to that point, it's a fair bet they're trying to impress the teacher. The good students are the ones who follow the assignment, stay on topic, and understand how to answer the question or respond to the prompt as clearly as possible.

@copperbird You ruined my day. Just now. It's ruined.
Also, glad I'm not the only Wizard who hates those stupid wasps. I thought the game was bugging out and leaving me stuck in a party-difficulty mode when I first got there. In-freaking-sane.
" Using complex vocabulary and 6000 words you pulled from the thesaurus may look impressive to your English teacher..."
Nope, it doesn't. I grade people much, much harder when they try to impress me. They're missing the point. Thanks for the link-love, Matt! Maybe we'll teach 'em yet!
