Our ERLC three-part series with Rick has finished, but we’re still processing questions we didn’t know we had, elements about which we’re still wondering. Take a moment now, look through your handouts and notes, and join Rick and other participants for a one-hour session in which we revisit topics from the series and get clarification on anything that still confuses us. It’s a wide open conversation on principles and practices of assessment and grading, particularly while students are learning at home, differentiated instruction, tiering/scaffolding, descriptive feedback, and how to minimize cheating/copying among students while they work at home. If you’re like us, it’s the follow-up discussions where the best connections are made in professional development. Register for the session, and mark your calendars today!
