Try blood.

I told my students at the beginning of a school year to please not write in red on any graded work.  Some of my students did not seem to understand this concept.  Here is what happened:

 

Me: “Please make sure not to write in red on anything you turn in to me.”

Student: “Why not?”

Me: “Because I grade in red pen, so if you write in red it will be hard for you to distinguish between my grading and your writing.”

Student: “So no red pen?”

Me: “Right.”

Student: “Red marker is okay then?”

Sigh…
