Test Papers

As you read this, remember:  The person with the red pen always has the last word. 

 
This teacher takes joy in the little things — like these good-humored binder clips.

Some people complain about too many awards, but if you do it right, you can make the right statement.

And if that doesn't work, a wall of shame is a pretty good tactic, too.

The English language can be tricky, but thanks to this teacher, this student will never again confuse the words "cereal" and "serial."

Although sometimes, things just get confusing. All kinds of confusing.

Sometimes, it's all too clear what's going on, and it's time for some tough advice.

Of course, some teachers have slightly different takes on things like cheating.

A good knowledge of pop culture doesn't hurt, either. Gotta reach the kids somehow, right?

But then again, you have to make sure the kids get your references, too. Otherwise, this can happen:

But it's always good to teach them that old sayings have truth in them. This one is a real-life example of the pen being mightier than the sword.

It's a good use of the image, but how long do you think this teacher spent practicing it?
clip_image011
 
This IS depressing, but at least teacher and student have the kind of rapport where they can be honest with one another, right?
clip_image012
 
But don't expect that kind of compassion when you take your grievances to Facebook.
clip_image013
 
I think someone's had enough of Judy.
clip_image014
 
Then again, with the right motivation, some teachers can be bribed.
clip_image015
 
But while some may respond to bribes, threats aren't usually taken seriously.

Okay, so if you’re in the education profession, we do advise you to use discretion if you’re going to out-snark your snarky students. And if you’re not, you can bask in the glory of these teachers who have finally had enough.

  5. My red pen was always out for writing assignments (although I preferred purple.) Run-on sentences and fragments drove me crazy! I found a great flash card game where I would put different groups of words on the overhead, and on the count of 3, the kids had to hold up Run-On, Fragment, or Complete. It really helped. I also had them red pen each other's work.

    I still don't mind editing but like to throw a little teaching in, just for good measure. I supervise 3 college students as one of the duties in my job, and they are always handing me something to look over.
