Where am I going? How is it Going? What Are My Next Steps? – A Focus on Using Rubrics and Success Criteria to Drive Student Practice and Feedback
Limited Capacity seats available

In classrooms where students 1) clearly understand their goals and expectations, 2) know what success looks and sounds like, and 3) have ample time to practice, make mistakes and receive focused feedback aligned to the success criteria, achievement is profoundly accelerated.   This session will focus on creating student-friendly rubrics that enable and guide students in becoming independent learners through practice and feedback. Best practices for rubric creation will be incorporated as attendees create their own student-friendly rubric around a given standard and expected subskills.

The Real SBG: A Hybrid Model That Works
Limited Capacity seats available

A truly Standards Based Grading classroom or grade book can be overwhelming and tedious, but it shouldn’t be! This session will demonstrate a practical approach to Standards Based Grading practices using grading categories, a traditional point-based system, and standards-based student-driven assessment. Take the busy work out of grading, and give the power to the students using a standards portfolio. See how allowing students to choose which assignments the teacher should grade empowers students to assess their own work critically. Oh, and did I mention, it creates LESS grading for you! Finally, you will see what a grade book looks like for this hybrid approach, and how to use the grade book to drive instruction.
