I hate teaching a class not designed by me that thinks so little of students abilities that it considers 600 words an essay.

600 words is NOT an essay and a college writing class should be asking students to do more.

But then again, this class was designed by the same boomer who taught a developmental English class meant to help underprepared students for college level writing classes and thought having them turn in paragraphs was a full assignment and was shocked - SHOCKED - I had them writing full essays.

If you structure your class with activities directly related to your course outcomes and what's expected of them, they learn to do it. And they need to learn to do it.

College should be challenging!
