[Teacher-talkhswriters] Linda's reflective house numbers

From: Knall, Katherine <kathy.knall_at_sinclair.edu>

Your activity with having students email the city about getting reflective numbers for their homes combined practice of so many skills, from learning the proper format for email, to punctuation and sentence structure - and doing it for a real-life purpose. It's interesting that one of your students didn't bother with punctuation, even when it was on the board in front of him!

Has anyone else tried the computer grading of essays in Learning Express? Having computers score student writing is a hot topic in education these days - some are totally opposed to the idea, while others see it as a tool to save time. As with most things in education, there's no clear "right" answer.
