Day 12

Today's question asked what strategies I use to keep up with grading.  I have recently been researching standards based grading and I think it is the right direction to head in.  I could also talk for hours on how teachers should look at all of their assignments and toss the ones that are not meaningful.  I am guilty of this, but I have been reflecting and tossing a lot of things as well.  Hey... we are all learning.


  1. How I keep up with grading is that I simply do less of it. The grades my students receive are learning grades; what they have accomplished, what type of readers and writers they are. My parents know that when the grade comes home, it clearly reflects what their child has learned.
