Thank you for these tips. I love you knack for thinking of what works best and not just sticking to the norm. What does the procedure of returning graded work from those files to students look like? Do kids get this independently-- and is this also the way you pass out the school admin. papers? I am thinking it through and in my current system both types of papers go to one place: mailboxes. It works better than having them take something directly to backpacks, since this area is hidden around the corner. It's also very quick to check if anyone is missing a paper or assignment.
