working assignments

Unread postby obatala » 28 Mar 2008, 19:46

Here's how I handle worksheet assignments: When the students hand in a worksheet and the answer is incorrect, I place an “O” beside it and hand it back. At the top of the worksheets, there are two numbers; the one on top is the number of correct answers for this assignment and the number at the bottom is the total number of questions or responses. Students are encouraged to correct the worksheets. I emphasize correct answers and learning from our mistakes, so when they correct the answer the “O” is now “OK”. If the answer is still incorrect, I just circle it again with a different color of ink. The numbers at the top of the page are adjusted accordingly. I emphasize that regardless of how many times it took to learn the lesson, what IS important is that they finally learned it...So I wanted to share this with all of you..... :)

The best way to correct a student's written work is not necessarily the most obvious.

If you've been to a traditional school then you will have probably had your homework corrected in full by your teachers - all the mistakes pointed out and the corrections put in.

But this isn't very productive for the student and it's pretty much a waste of time for the teacher.

See the ICAL video on correcting work for an effective way of marking your students’ assignment. ... cting_Work
