I posted this is New Teachers already, but I thought I might get a few more suggestions if I posted here! I used my long weekend to get some grading done. After going through and entering grades for every class, I have about 21 students who have at least one missing assignment. YIKES! That's almost a whole class worth of students! The thing is, I KNOW I've seen these kids working on the assignments. I have specific memories of helping many of them during class. Students know what to do with the assignment when they're finished because I ask the whole class at the end of my directions EVERY day, "Where does it go when you're finished," and they answer, "in the tray!" Somehow, the assignments are just disappearing into a void somewhere between the desk and the tray. 21 seems like an unusually large number. What am I doing wrong??
