        I posted my reply before I read the many replies
you got to your question of getting students to produce
higher quality work. After reading the responses, I was
reminded of several things I had done while teaching.
But, most importantly I was reminded of the vast knowledge
and experience on this list and their willingness to share.
This thread is a wonderful example of sharing. My faith
in good teaching has been reassured.
