I visited my brother tonight. His daughter started year 7 a few weeks ago. He showed me her maths and English books; they haven't been seen by a teacher at all. I teach primary so I don't want to judge but I was a bit surprised. I wasn't expecting her books to be marked everyday but not once since she started. I'm curious, is this normal? I'm not asking for whether you think marking works - I have my doubts! How often do you mark books?
