Whew! We are now at the end of WEEK 6 and having a long weekend (for Labour Day) has finally given me an opportunity to take a breath and update the blog. The first six weeks as a Head of Department have been extremely tiring but have also felt very rewarding and worthwhile!
One thing that I have found useful over the past few weeks is this whole class marking crib sheet that I have put together. This has been inspired by the great work put together by @MrThorntonTeach here.
This has many benefits both for teachers and students – it saves time for teachers and provides another marking option. It also provides students with more useful and specific whole class feedback.
