Recently, I came across a piece of homework with 890 words, and it was all written as 1 big paragraph. The student didn't ever start on a new line.
So I was thinking, it would be great if we could remind people to write their homework in paragraphs. When you're tired or just not feeling well, it's really hard to focus on one big block of text which doesn't even give the reader and breathing space.
Perhaps a word limit per paragraph - 250 words? After 250 words, they have to add a new paragraph. It would make grading so much easier as right now, there are certain homework pieces that I just give up on. I wait for an hour and then see if there's something else to grade.
This way, both the grader and the homework maker have to wait... not an ideal situation.
