random thoughts about books, words, life, writing, and the occasional movie, of varying levels of significance, in no particular order
Well, at least the lady in the picture is almost at the top instead of buried somewhere underneath. Surely that speaks well for your case. I can help. You can just write "A+" on the papers for Heather McIntosh, Adria Giles, Joelle Low, and Becca Burley. See? Much faster. :)
What are response cards? It sounds like you're grading cards from church.
Ha! In British Lit, instead of quizzes, I have students write, on a 4x6 note card, a response to what they've read for class that day. They can explore a question, make a connection, trace a theme, anything. It just can't be a yes or no type response; it has to show that they've read the work and thought critically about at least one aspect of it. I love it because it really helps with class discussion. And I think it's more useful than quizzing them.
