I just graded the Junior High School 3rd Grade NELP English B Mid-Term.
AMAZING. These third graders are SO awesome. There are ten of them, but they're so closely matched in level. More than that, all ten of them turned in ALL of their homework, and 90 percent of their homework was early. Not only that, they STUDIED for their test! Studied hard!
The English B test is no longer multiple choice. For most of the questions, they have to WRITE the answers. They did an outstanding job. Just super-excellent.
One thing that really touched me was that most of them used a particular term that I only used in class. That means they not only studied, they LISTENED.
They're SUCH a FANTASTIC group of students!
