    Bit of a random one- what do people use to carry sketchbooks for marking?
    I’ve used a little trolley in the past but they don’t last long!

    I wouldn't carry them in anything.
    Look at them, and discuss them with students as/ when they are USING them to work, but they should be with the student of they're to be useful as a resource. Students are aware if you know what they're doing, and comment on it, but I'd certainly think no trolley could really cope, and why should you cart them around?
    ( Not quite the same, but I solved a problem of not being able to get into "my" room to mark, etc., when not teaching by processing at the head of a crocodile of pupils, all bearing their (slightly damp) work, to the staffroom, taking each piece from them at the door, and spreading all over the entire place to mark a set of work, when a comment had been made that there wasn't as much time needed for marking Art as "Real" subjects. That made my point that I had to be able to use my room when I was on non-contact, and brought home to other staff that if wasn't a simple process of "tick ... B+" and on to the next!! You might want to try something similar)
    Don't give yourself backache!
