Presentation: Abolishing and Replacing Grading
Description: Are you tired of students asking you: “What’s this question out of?” or “Is this for marks?” Ever been frustrated with students who see every learning experience you provide for them as just another chore? Have you experienced disappointment with students who continually avoid challenges and choose the lazy way out of learning? Have you felt discouraged with grade grabbing students who are unhappy even when they get 99%? If you can relate to any of these questions, this session is for you! I will share with you how I abolished grading from my classroom even though I am still required to place a grade on a report card.
