Abstract:     
Part of the teacher-student relationship is created in the commenting process. Students make conclusions about the ethos of their writing professor based on the way in which students view the comments written in the margins of their papers. This article explores marginalia as discourse, composition theory, and rhetorical theory and develops principles that can underlie an ethos of commenting.
