This habit is a hard one for me! I actually failed it on Friday, but today is a new day and I’m on a mission to make sure this one happens!
File those papers as you grade! Not necessarily grade a paper, file…grade a paper, file… but grade what you set out to grade and then immediately file those take home papers. Whether you file those papers in a cardboard mailbox or file folders like I do, try to make it a priority to file them away immediately.
What’s the result of not filing them immediately? A stack of papers that you look at over and over again dreading to touch!
