This week marks the beginning of a critical journey for my students, my teammate, and me. In my Science class and the Social Studies class, students will be learning about the Gradeless Classroom format that we will be employing when the second semester starts on January 2.
The kickoff this week begins with us sharing a letter with our students and their parents. Then, on Wednesday night, I moderate a Twitter chat for our district about shifting from grades to feedback.
Finally, on Thursday night, parents are invited to a question & answer session after our previously scheduled Curriculum Night.
I’ll post more next weekend, after I’ve weathered this adventurous week. Hopefully, I’ll have good news to share.
