End of the quarter.
I don't like the busy-ness that comes with this time of year, especially centered around grades. I want to get rid of this end-of-the-quarter crunch the kids get themselves into and expect me to bail them out of. I had so many kids swarm me asking for the assignments they are missing. Then, I have to get all of those assignment put into the gradebook. It just takes so much time, and I don't like it.
How can I be better at keeping on top of kids with missing assignments throughout the quarter? How can I encourage more getting done on time and less waiting until now? How can I do that while teaching kids to be responsible on their own?
