assessment

In my classroom, we wonder. We wonder how wildfires start. We wonder what is the largest dog in the world. We wonder who invented Legos. My 4th-graders are full of questions. Their curiosity is contagious. We set the stage for wondering from the very beginning of the school year. Inquiry is the foundation on which I build my curriculum. My 4th-grade students know that our classroom is safe; it is...

Whether students are reading an actual book or reading on their phone, tablet, or any other device, I am a firm believer that even the most reluctant middle school readers can be nurtured and develop ap- preciation for literature and reading.

That's is. I am banning posters and PowerPoints from my classroom. And I am banning them not simply because they are just not used outside the classroom (when was the last time you cut and pasted letters onto posterboard for your job?).  I am banning them because there is no audience for them once students create them.  At least, no authentic audience. When students create posters and PowerPoints...

Hello! My name is Chad Sansing. I teach humanities at the Community Public Charter School, and I am an unabashed fan of joyful learning. It can be connected learning or self-directed learning.

It can happen because of schools...

Assessment of multimedia composing is a very young discipline. Resources here capture how we might re-refashion our learning expectations and criteria for composing- in both traditional and multimedia settings.
We have assembled this collection so that teachers may know the territory of machine scoring writing and, when and if their school system considers adopting one of these machine-reading services, they may act appropriately. We believe ourselves that machine-scoring fundamentally alters the social and rhetorical nature of writing—that writing to a machine is not writing at all.
The ten badges attached to this resource are from the first month and a half of our weekly self-assessment practice. Each Friday we badge what we have learned. To begin, we grab our journals and write about the learning that sticks out to us from the last week. Then we pick the pieces of learning that seem most powerful or fun to each of us. These are the pieces of learning that we will badge. We...
