‘Finish this work’…..’Underline your title’……’Please check your spellings’
How many times have you written these in a student’s book?
How many times did they actually do as you asked?
Have you ever asked yourself why?
Maybe they didn’t have the time to do it. Maybe they don’t care about the work. Maybe they don’t know how to finish it. Maybe it was done so long ago they don’t remember what to do.
Do yourself a favour, stop writing this stuff unless you’ve reflected on why they haven’t done it and have a plan on when/how they will do it.
Otherwise you’re just talking to yourself. Life’s too short.
