Teaching is not a "gotcha" enterprise, yet...
many assessment and grading practices fall into that category

How do we move from mere documentation, judgment, and sorting to using assessment to inform instructional design and build student self-efficacy, and using grades to provide accurate, ethical reports of student learning? 

And how do we reconcile our own grading and equity pedagogy with that of our faculty and colleagues, if they differ?

Join Rick Wormeli on May 6 from 10:00-11:30 for an unusually candid, 90-minute session in which we provide tips and insights on how to facilitate the journey of faculty and ourselves as we move toward more equitable and ethical grading practices. We’ll look at:


  • specific advice on reflective coaching for grading
  • extended and robust professional development experiences that really help move the needle
  • creating a grading philosophy statement
  • six critical conversations that need to be conducted
  • how to work with skeptics
  • how to help teachers get past strong egos and accept new initiatives
  • how to help teachers identify ethical principles so they can gather their own practical solutions as grading challenges occur.

Based on work with NASSP, ASCD affiliates, and in hundreds of school systems in the U.S. and around the world, this compelling workshop provides veteran dozens of practical, leadership strategies to help teachers embrace this shift in thinking, practice, and policy, even among the initially hesitant.

Don’t miss it!
