Minimum Grading Policies... Process and Product Grades... Homework as Practice... Discipline and Responsibility are Behavior Issues NOT Gradebook Entries Reflective of Content Mastery!
It is time to Revise our Methods and Open Our Eyes to What IS Real and True in American Education.
Now I see that there is a grand spin-off of this motivational and truth-bearing concept in teaching and learning, a grass-roots movement known as "Teachers Throwing Out Grades". This is such an exciting step in education! It is an incredibly important step toward Truth in Learning in American Education.
Note: If you are a self-serving educator who resists change and evidence-based, emerging best practices, STOP here. It's time to Retire!!! :)
