Hey guys! I am a first year teacher. I teach 7th grade math. I am having trouble with putting together a good procedure for passing back student work. Currently, I collect work, correct it over night and write feedback on it and try to pass it back the next day. Things usually get pretty busy and there are times when I dont get work passed back for a week or two or more which is horrible!!! Part of the problem is that our school has us keep students work in folder until it is time to put together a portfolio. So what I usually do is once in a while have students grab there folder, pass back all work and then have them fie it in their folder. Later on down the line they look back and pick out the work they are most proud of to go in their portfolio. the rest of the work stays in the folder. This is very time consuming! I would like to get all work back to my students the next day so they have instant feedback but I am not sure how to. My students do sit in groups of 4 so I was thinking of having group folders. but I am not sure. any ideas, comments or suggestions? thanks!
