Deep Dive and Teacher Inquiry: MOVING PAST THE ZERO: RE-ENVISIONING HOW WE GRADE

Deep Dive and Teacher Inquiry: MOVING PAST THE ZERO: RE-ENVISIONING HOW WE GRADE

Join us for one of our next workshop series. We’ll read together, learn from each other, and embark on educational redesigns, putting what we’re learning to practice.

Up next for spring 2021: MOVING PAST THE ZERO: RE-ENVISIONING HOW WE GRADE

In this inquiry group, we’ll read and discuss the book Grading for Equity: What It Is, Why It Matters, and How It Can Transform Schools and Classrooms by Joe Feldman. Feldman is a teacher, principal, director, and researcher who looks critically at standard, accepted grading practices questioning their ability to accurately and equitably assess student knowledge and growth. He offers alternatives that keep students motivated, assess students on course content, and create equity for all students. Please share with fellow teachers who would be interested in an inquiry into grading practices.

Open to all grades.  

Meeting dates: April 13 and 20; May 4 and May 18. Led by Nicole LaGrave.
