Do you struggle to hand back papers quickly?
This system was inspired by the “Soup Nazi” episode on Seinfeld.
I have aPDF explaining it on my teacher's list serv, a PowerPoint demonstrating it, and a weekly tally sheet for world language teachers and another one in English for other subjects that can be modified to fit your needs. They are in excel and PDF.
With a little bit of training, most of my junior high classes of 30 can receive all of their papers back, come up to my desk to confirm their grades, and see their current cumulative grades in eight minutes or less!
If you like this idea, please consider purchasing my book, Teacher Dialogue, available in my TPT store. The table of contents is below. Thank you.
