Towards Smarter marking

Here are more things we are doing to ensure effective use of teacher time.  I am amazed that not all schools are doing these already.  The resounding message is we must all be working smarter for maximum use of teacher time.

The days of long hours of marking till 11pm daily so OFSTED does not grade us  as 'Marking is ineffective.' should be dead and buried six feet under.

Here are two helpful blog links for more ideas on using teacher time more effectively:
