How I avoid grading stacks of assignments PART I
9:22 AM Sarah Koves 0 Comments
Two best grading pieces of advice I was ever given, but I still struggle to follow:
1) You don't have to grade everything.
2) If you only have your students write as much as you can grade, they aren't writing enough.

Professional: I want to work in coaching or curriculum, which are both things our district is looking at expanding. I need to do some data reports to showcase my skills and desires. I don't want to leave the classroom completely, but I would love an hour or two of helping others this way. Anyone know of good books on these topics?
Planning: I am embracing the elementary model of self-monitored learning through stations. I want to work this into my high school English classes with perhaps something like the Daily 5. I have also become a big proponent of movement in the high school classroom. I want to read more and do more of this with all my classes this year.
Organization: Grading...Do I really need to say more? I am constantly behind. I need to not only get on top of this, but I need to set myself up to have less to grade. Suggestions would be appreciated.
Students: I am hoping to incorporate more choice reading into my English classes, especially when it comes to informational texts. I am still flushing out what this will look like and how it will work.
Motto: I need to look to the future and what I can accomplish not the regrets I have about the past.
