    After my autocorrect screw up lets try again

    I was having a discussion and it's ones I hear over and over again what do you use the classbook for. To me the classbook is a record of the students efforts in lesson. Others say it's to show progress over time. Although I'm unsure how the classbook shows this as the topics frequently change. Also unless your consistently grading lessons I'm unsure if the progress is tenable. Others believe that they are for notes to revise from.

    What do yo think the aim of the classbook is for?

    How do you think it should be use to achieve this?

    It is for the kids in order to have something to revise from in order for them to have the best possible chance in their exams in order for them to have as many choices as possible in shaping their futures. And looking forward, it will sometimes be something for a kid to put in their box of most prized possessions which they keep through to adult hood. If it's the subject they really loved, if they did something manifestly amazing, if the teacher gave them their only gold star ever.
    However, it seems none of my managers believe me when I tell them all of this. For them, it is a quasi forensic trail of evidence that I am failing if that is what they choose to seek. Funny that-it's got the kid's name on the front, not mine.
