Today's Best Practice...When you have an update grades day make sure the students have a task to work on.
Sometimes I get going so fast with the lessons that I almost forget to SLOW DOWN...PASS BACK THEIR ASSIGNMENTS...LET STUDENTS GET FEEDBACK AND TALK TO ME ABOUT POSSIBLE MISTAKES I MADE IN GRADING.
After the week and a half of putting a lot of time into the Sierra Unit samples and Field trip for my honors science class I SLOWED DOWN. It's amazing how some classes have a way of driving me nuts and other classes are pure charm and easy and fun.
Today as I updated and handed out papers my students were preparing to present their Mini Science Projects.
I hope this helps,
Love to Teach and Teach with Passion
Remember...It's not Magic, It's Science
