By the end of each period, as students' fingers hovered over the "Turn In" button in Google Classroom, the look of relief and apprehension showed in their faces. I praised each class; the students worked so hard over the two week time period. I am sure that as I write this blog post, the students are checking ProgressBook to see if the grades are posted. (Unfortunately, this is the world we live in.)
I am proud of their effort and the countless times the students read their work and the improvement from draft one to draft ten or twenty. The dedication of my 8th graders is inspiring!
