What I do is require that students ALWAYS complete their homework in
pencil.  They are to make their corrections in class in PEN only!  You
can see anyone using a pencil quite easily.  If their homework is done
in pen originally, I do not award any credit... Sometimes someone will
tell you that they did not have a pencil and ask if they can check it
with a differnt color ink for that day.  I tell them okay and ask them
to write me a note on the top of their paper.  This way, they're sure
to remember next time!
