HI....That's an interesting take on the problem. Since you've used this
idea before, Maggie, how often have you used it and did you have many
students try this process? Did you think it was successfully accomplished
and did the student feel better? Did the other kids still via to see this
work and cause a hassle? Did the students "visit" their work later? Did you
have a chance to discuss personally the work with each student? Hummmm.
