I created Learning in an Hour as the store where teaching products are developed to be completed in a 1 hour block of time, or more. I also wanted to create projects that were easy to grade in the classroom. I have taught for 13 years and love to be in the classroom, but many weekends were spent with my tub of grading. I have tried every trick in the book to manage the ever increasing grading pile. At the end of the day, there may be 30 minutes away from teaching, duties and meetings that I could dedicate to the grading pile. That was just not enough time with emails, questions from coworkers, etc.
The only way I have been able to manage the grading has been meeting with students and grading before their eyes during class. This allows for immediate feedback, ability to correct work, and clarification of student expectations. My goal is to help teachers spend less time grading and more time enjoying their weekends.
To the future,
Learning in an Hour
