Due to the phone calls...

Almost exactly half of my students brought in their rough drafts. It's a little sad that this is exactly what I expected to happen. I would have been shocked if nearly the whole class brought their papers in.

Wow, I just can't even believe that you CALL students, I think it's great to be so involved, but a shame that you have to do that. Even worse that after the calls, only half showed up with their papers. Dang.

I agree, it seems so outside of the box that you would even call your students. I never had that type of relationship with any of mine. My teachers never seemed to care. No papers? Fail.

I'm kind of jealous.

Teachers at my school are really expected to be that involved with their students. It also explains the high turnover rate (even for a school)--people just can't take that sort of pressure for very long.

I'll never forget my sophomore history teacher saying that "A students success comes with three times of equal participation and attention -- the students, the parents and the teacher." I never forgot that.
