What do you feel are some mistakes that most students in English courses make?
â€œA big mistake is that most students think about the page requirement for an essay rather than about the quality of the essay. If students write to a page limit, they end up putting a lot of filler in their essays. When students concentrate on developing their ideas, then the page requirement takes care of itself.â€
This is pretty good.
I might use it with my freshman English classes.
