I’m grading all night - grades are due TODAY and I’m not done. Don’t think they’ll be storing at midnight. Bummer. I just can’t take something that took them weeks and grade it in a minute - more like 5-20 depending on the project - and I give them rubrics back that compare to their own rubrics that they used to self assess themselves. We do these instead of finals, so they were due the last week of school just before we got out.
You can say I did it to myself, but really, project based learning is so much better than the traditional multiple choice “finals.” Sad, however, that those who take the multiple choice route and may not teach as well (or are required to do it that way) are resting easy tonight while I work.
But good teaching is never easy and I dream and hope to be a good teacher.
