Saving Student Notes
February 21, 2008
"I teach sophomores and seniors but I don't see the kids in eleventh grade. The eleventh grade material doesn't overlap mine at all. So, when I teach grammar skills to my tenth graders, I save the kids' note sheets and return them to the students in their senior year. Seeing their own writing on a familiar note sheet helps jog their memories. They also don't have to rewrite all those notes during their senior year! The kids laugh at their terrible sophomore handwriting and appreciate having those notes right at hand as we go over the old material and then build on it. "
