grading marathon: day 3

Am I the only teacher who finds herself spending at least 2 hours each day of spring break grading?

I can almost see the light--it's dim, and obscured by the clouds, but there's a glow around their fluffy edges.

Thanks for visiting my blog and having me on your blogroll. I will add you to my blogroll and visit your blog in the future.

Grading Papers....one of those must be done chores of teaching. This weekend, I brought home NOTHING to grade, so that maybe these aging, abused eyes of mine can recover to get through the next week. As my eyes get worse, I find myself less tolerant of accepting student work that is too light / sloppy / illegible / or just so poorly written that it seems to be a variant of the Klingon or Upper Middle Orican or some non-english language.

Have a good week !

Sorry I haven't visited for a while; I find myself planning a wedding, serving on a grand jury, and trying to end the school year. Hope you didn't spend the entire spring break buried in papers. I'm currently teaching "Speak" to my LD English classes, and they're loving it, which makes these last few weeks easier. Hope yours ends well.

Boy, the time you spend grading papers is absolutely horrifying. Can't you find a way to work it into your school day?

Maybe when you have kids writing in your class you could call them up, one by one, and personally go over it with them. Sometimes they respond better to that.

I've seen some of my meticulously corrected papers go straight into the trash bin.
