    I found that I did not keep up on messiness and it got worse and worse. This past year I kept my expectations high and did not except messy work, had students rewrite, ect. I also got an idea from another teacher - I had pen licenses printed on paper, about the size of a dollar, that allowed the student to write using a pen - his name was printed on the license with an expiry date (end of the month) and would be renewed as long as there were not too many violations(messy work). The student had to be using only cursive writing when using the pen and not pen during math, Students had to prove they were ready for the license by showing notebooks. I found that this helped with neatness and with encouraging cursive writing - lisence wase taped onto corner of desk.
