Hi All! When you have your students turn in typed papers, do you have them turn in a sheet that shows the word count? I was just wondering as I am still in college (graduate in August!! YES!!) and some of my classmates increase the size of the periods in Microsoft Word to lengthen their papers. They increase the size of the periods from 12 to 14.5 font and it is not noticeable at all. So, we had an 8 page paper due (dbl. spaced) and they typed 6 pages, increased the size of the periods and it turned to 8. If you have more periods in your papers (due to quoting), then it lengthens it more. Any problems with this?
