Virtual Event- FIRST STEPS:STANDARDS-BASED GRADING $50 Member/$90 Non-Members
Nov 12 from 3:00 PM to 5:30 PM
Register at https://forms.gle/3VUAMJjzB5ZDVP8o9 Teaching during COVID has really driven home the need to have tight curriculum and clear targets. Deeply connected to that is a need for clear, equitable grading. A true application of standards-based grading practices revolutionizes curriculum planning, collective collaboration, assessment, and reporting practices. This is daunting, to say the least, and has the power to absolutely transform how we "do school" at this critical time. This session is designed to help teams get a head start in that direction by looking at standards-based grading and its implications in the classroom. Goals for the session: Evaluate current grading practices within your school/district Understanding the importance and process of prioritizing standards Analyze and recognize effective classroom-based assessments Define meaningful grades Connect standards-based grading to the bigger picture of MTSS and on-going school improvement Teams including administrators and teachers from your school are encouraged to attend.

Register at https://forms.gle/ggQBCCwJ9ugbL2xj6 Objectives: Investigate reasons why reading seems to be a challenge for guys. Explore the importance of choice. Meet at least 60 guy friendly titles. Come up with an Action Plan- at least 3 things that you can do now! Description: Social media, girls, cars, jobs, video games, how can we compete? We frequently think that boys don’t like to read. Perhaps they enjoy formats and genres other than what we do. Perhaps it’s that they’ve never found what works for them. Perhaps they are our Hesitant Readers and Late Bloomers. Perhaps we need to tie into the power of curiosity. Come spend the day thinking all things guy- from titles to authors to genres to formats to activities that just might reel them in.
