So what exactly would be a splurge or an indulgence on a grading diet? Skipping a paper or grading an extra one?
I will note that I have taught legal writing at three law schools now, and while I have seen people grading a lot of papers in extended sessions at each one, there's one pattern I have seen practiced only by males: the binge grading session. That is, start at the top of the stack and work through it steadily without stopping until all the papers are done, even if that's 24 or 30 hours later.
Has anyone else 1) seen this approach or 2) seen it practiced by women?
Just curious . . . my sample size is certainly limited.
