Tired of marking the same basic spelling and grammar mistakes every time you mark books? Have you ever wondered if your students are actually paying any attention to what they are doing? Have you spent pointless hours correcting mistakes only to see the same mistakes in their next piece of work?
Well try this - a simple, quick marking system that forces students to engage with the process of corrections and saves hours of copious, often pointless, marking by you. This is the system I have been using for my literacy and grammar marking for over 5 years and it really works. It is a system I have introduced to lots of departments - not only English - as a way to improve literacy across the curriculum.
The intro, which was written for a conference, addresses lots of marking issues and the booklet sets out the step by step process for circle marking.
Any questions or problems send me a message and I will be delighted to send you examples of students work so you can see it in action.
