This Teacher Still Gives Credit For Assignments When Students Don’t Understand The Work – The Shade Room

A Black educator is causing a splash on Twitter over one of her teaching methods. The teacher, listed as Bonnie with @yafavoriteaunty as her handle, shared a common practice with her followers. Within two days, the initial tweet received more than 43,000 retweets and over 408,000 likes.

“One of my babies didn’t do his homework. No kid should be embarrassed because they lack knowledge,” wrote Ms. H, as Bonnie described herself in a separate tweet. “So I tell them to write me notes and I write back. No outbursts, no displays. So he gets credit just for turning it in and letting me know he’s struggling.”

One thing ur new age educators are doing is changing the way we think about learning! Ms. H is proof of that. Along with the tweet, she shared a partial photo of a student’s homework with the written note “Division is hard.” In red ink, Ms. H responded “I will help you!”

As the tweet continued to receive attention, Bonnie took time to clarify the other red mark on the paper.

“There seems to be some confusion here lol so I’ll clear it up,” Bonnie tweeted. “The check mark is his grade, nothing more or less. The 2/10 you see is today’s date lol. I do that on every paper so I know when I graded it.”
