Handing Back Student Work
October 10, 2008
I have some unruly groups who cannot manage even one minute of unstructured time. Handing back papers can turn into mayhem in seconds! To expedite this process, I take a couple of minutes to stack the papers in seating-arrangement order so that I can hand them back quickly. When it's time to return them, I can go up and down the rows and finish in less than thirty seconds. Less time for the rascals to get something started! This also allows me to notice whose paper is not in the pile. I will have to pass by that student without a paper, so I can take that opportunity to remind the student to complete the missing work.
