  • grade then come in- letting Ms. Smith grade your paper and then coming in
  • just grade- just let her grade it
    you will need to sign up for one of these options on your rubric and turn it in to Ms.Smith as well as signing up for an appointment in her planner

    • communism, red scare, McCarthyism
  • Judging, labels
