Drowning in grading

I just realized just how much grading I have to do over the next week. I have, between my two classes, a wave of revisions, a third essay, an outline, an abstract, and a one-page writeup. Not everybody handed everything in, but that totals around sixty distinct assignments that I have to evaluate. Gah.

I can get away with only focusing on what the students need for their coming work for the next Tuesday deadline. That means grading the Lesley essays #3 and the outlines for North Shore. But I should probably make sure I respond to the abstracts ASAP, as they need those to plan their research papers. The revisions are for the grade book, but the students aren't pressed for them, and I can probably get away with not grading all the pieces of the North Shore final immediately. Those require revision, but not until the end.

I don't want my whole break with my family to be taken up with grading, but I've got to get it done on time. This is the worst part of being a teacher. 😝
