I teach Art on the elementary level, once a week for 40 minutes. I have
a hard time keeping kids informed of what they have and haven't turned
in for the quarter. I post a chart from the computer, which shows the
grade they have received for the project and a (o), if it hasn't been
turned in. Invariably, I have kids that say, " what do I owe you?" and
the chart is posted, or "I already turned that in to you" and they find
it in the art folder, unfinished and NOT turned in. Is there a better or
simpler way to keep track of their grades for them???? I have an art
folder in which everyone puts their projects during the week, and
hopefully they have remembered to put their names on the back of the
project after 50 times of reminding them!!! This gets old and tiring!!!!
Today the quarter was over. The chart had been posted for two weeks
with a grade or a (0), for no grade. I still got kids that said, What do
I owe you, or I turned that in already. I keep pretty good grades and I
am not senile yet!!!
I have 30 classes, so doing a BIG poster for each class is impossible.
I use the computer and post their grades, and this still doesn't help.
HELP!!! Any great ideas!!
