don't assign too much

I like the advice of if you're not going to grade it - don't assign it. I'll take it a step further. I decided that teaching writing in 7th grade - I'd be drowning in papers. so - I decided to only take a maximum of 8 grades for the six weeks. That way we can grade more in class - and I can do informal assessments for learning. On writing - I learned a long time ago to grade for specifics - if we're working on lead sentences - only grade that. If it's active verb choice - only look at that. I know it's tempting to look at everything in a paper - but don't! it takes too much time.
