If you have experienced the frustration of wading through a stack of essays only to discover that your students do not understand the function, purpose, and correct location of key elements, you will likely find that this resource is for you. It will also appeal to your type "A" personality and desire for order. The highlighting code is something I have used for years. It is easy to recognize those papers that exemplify an understanding of how to organize writing versus those that don't merely by taking a glance at what is or is not highlighted. You can even grade or provide quick feedback based on a student's ability to highlight his or her work. Enjoy!
