Misunderstandings

It has come to my attention that several people misunderstood a poem, “Term Papers,” that I wrote and was published in the December issue of the Faculty Voice. The intent was to make fun of – and to criticize – faculty members who when grading take into consideration some students’ non-academic factors such as sport preference or body type. But alas, several readers thought I was revealing my grading methods! Anyone who has graded term papers knows that subjective biases can on occasion be involved; it’s not right, but it’s a reality. –Bill Hanna
