What are the benefits of marking?

I found getting to know other professionals at meetings helped to build up my network of contacts.  These meetings gave me opportunities to share resources, discuss approaches with other English teachers and learn from their teaching experiences.

The most rewarding part of marking is the insight it gives me into different perspectives on texts and the range of responses they can stimulate.  I have found the experience has really enhanced the way I deliver texts.  It's also enriched my development of teaching and learning materials for my pupils.
