2: Managing Student Accountability
Mrs. Mayer is a new teacher at your school. She comes to you one afternoon and says, “I’ve got to figure out a better plan for keeping up with all this paperwork. I have so much grading to do – it is hard to get everything graded and back to the students in a timely fashion.” She goes on to say, “There is not one aspect of my paperwork life that I feel I have under control. Classwork, homework, grading – you name it, and I am struggling. If I don’t get my act together, I a not going to have anything to show parents when they come in for report card conferences. Help!”
What suggestions might you make that would help a teacher in Mrs. Mayer’s situation have an easier time managing student work?
