I am grading homework

September 08, 2003


I am grading homework this morning.

It always makes me restless to grade: Something about sitting there, deciphering what the kids said, figuring out if it is any good or not, writing a few words of critique and encouragement, and doing the whole thing as quickly as possible because there are more-more-more of them all the time. I insist on assigning homework, I do think the kids get a lot out of it. I just hate to grade it and end up forcing myself to stick to it.

Speaking of which, I am at the end of this study break - back to the trenches.

My grading soundtrack today is Nightingale - darn good music, very fluid and gentle and melodic, but with a hidden edge. I like it a lot.

Back to work, still not quite having a proper day
