I have done something NEAT in reading lately. Let me explain. I have printed out one test five times with essay questions and multiple choice. I then come up with five pretend "students", answer the questions in all different ways (leaving out essential information or really remaining focused for a top-scoring response in the essays). I also really focus on how I answer the multiple choice and try to get into the mind of a kid who is "confused" and may bubble in another answer. I then laminate them, and the students write on the forms with Vis-A-Vis markers to grade the imaginary "student". They are teachers and determine the student's grade. They have been so ecstatic about this. Also, I call them by their teacher's names. I told them they're getting reading teacher diplomas after they do a number of these grading sessions successfully. For example, if I have a student with the last name Williams, he is Mr. Williams. They find this hilarious.
