I also teach them during the first few weeks of the class before we 
largely switch over to computer.

Using the marks enforces a certain discipline of having to think before 
doing (yes, you can erase, but it takes more time and effort than 
undoing and redoing on computer) and then having to  read back what you 
have just done to make sure it makes sense. Plus, it's still 
advantageous at times to take a long story and edit it by hand; you get 
a better sense of the visual grammar involved.
