Today in my first period class, I asked a student to interpret another student’s work on the board. She said she couldn’t as it was written in red. She then mentioned that she can’t really see writing on the whiteboard when someone uses red or green. The class agreed to only use black or blue from now on.
It’s DECEMBER. I couldn’t believe that a student would wait until DECEMBER to mention this.
As we were also doing board work in fifth period, I asked, “Does anyone have trouble seeing what’s written in red and/or green?”
TWO students raised their hands.
*sighing* Lesson learned.
