Ag Teacher Hack"I use and love student binders. The students must put everything that is to be graded in them. I no longer collect individual sheets. I have cloth bins for each class. I just take out a bin and grade it. It keeps me organized and the students. If it is not in there when I go to grade, it's a zero."-Trish Krug, agriculture teacher at Dakota High School, Illinois
