It started when I realized how long it took to walk around the classroom to each student to give them their paper. There HAD to be a faster way.
So I started this process, and I lurve it!!! (though, I'm always welcome to even better ideas!)
|When I'm done sorting one class period's papers, I stack them together, with each row rotated 90 degrees to make it easy to hand out later.|
|I stuff them into the right class period cubby in my paper organizer.|
|Then when one class period leaves, I quickly plop the paper stacks onto the desks for the next class period. The student at the front of each row, finds his/her paper, then passes the rest of the stack behind him. Viola! Every paper handed back.|
|I know some of you might be thinking though, But I thought Rule #5 of Effective Communication in the Classroom said No Blaming or Shaming?! And you're right...we need a new name for this wall, don't we? Any suggestions?|
