I always have students who rush through their work or the writing is so sloppy that I have a hard time reading it. I few weeks ago I saw a post from Teach 123 which mentioned using a speeding ticket for students who rushed through their work.  I’ve been using this form since I read the post and it has really helped some of the students slow down!

I followed Teach 123’s instructions for using the speeding tickets.  I keep a stack of “speeding tickets” with me while I’m grading papers.  Then when I come across a paper where a student has rushed through their work I attach a speeding ticket to students’ paper.  The student must redo the assigning.
