This is the time of the year were you start getting nervous, specially when you just switch schools. I’ve been dreaming about all the different things I want my students to learn budding the first few weeks of school, and one of these days will be dedicated the how I grade in the classroom. See, I started my first 4 years of teaching already using Standard Based Grading, were I report by learning target and in a scale from 1 to 4. Now, in my new school, the traditional A, B, C, D, F and use percentages. I don’t see how can I go around this. I’ve been picture different scenarios and I am definitely not happy about any of them.
I’ve been following the blog shown below for a while and remembered this teacher write in the spirit of SBG. I am thinking starting this year doing small adjustments in the spirit of SBG instead.
