    take in a paper?

    Ask, Ask, Ask. Our teacher writes: “It’s important for every student to ask the teacher at least one question each week – and asking to go to the bathroom doesn’t count. It can be as simple as, ‘How am I doing in your class?’ If that’s too scary, you can take in a paper and have the teacher check over it. This makes a world of difference in making a student-teacher connection.”

    Not quite sure what the underlined part mean, esp. "take in a paper." Can anyone help me with it?

    Many thanks.

    I'm not 100% sure what your teacher wanted to say, but "take in a paper" probably means you can take a paper in to the teacher's office.

    Your teacher got the grammar just a bit wrong in the second part of the sentence. It should say, "have the teacher check it over." This means ask that the teacher check over (look for mistakes in) your paper.

    Does this help?
