Question Detail

What is the most efficient way for a teacher to meaningfully respond to student learning journals. This seems to be an overwhelming task for me. How often should I respond? I know immediate feedback is motivating and rewarding to students, but it does not always make sense for me in terms of time management.

Rubric? Pre-printed labels with various responses? How often should I respond? Collect journals periodically?

      You are saying it right. Immediate feedback is motivating but it always not good and it can cause mismanagement. For more click here

        Group the students. Each group would have different due dates, so you won't have to read them all at the same time. I find it less daunting to read a small number each day, instead of taking them all home on the weekend!
