    I teach middle school. I use a mailbox for students to write to me about any problems or questions they have that they do not want to discuss in front of the class. Over the years I have had students write about problems at home, with bullies, or just understanding a concept. Middle school age kids are so worried about being cool and accepted by their friends that is sometimes hard for them to speak up when they have a question. A couple times a week I will have the entire class answer a question on a scrap of paper and have them put their responses in the mailbox on the way out of the room as an "exit pass". I do this to allow students who are afraid to being seen leaving me a note a chance to do it without standing out.
