Assessing students is arguably one of the most difficult and nuanced tasks that teachers do on a daily basis. The whole-student philosophy about looking at students’ abilities beyond the content are both necessary and wonderful in the theory but teachers often find themselves struggling to make sense of it when pen hits paper. How do you actually assess work habits? Join a group of teachers who are committed to finding the proper balance and strategies in assessing where students are as learners of learning and life skills. Share ideas about what is happening in your classroom, grade-level or at your school and learn about alternate ways that other practitioners are finding success assessing students’ work habits in their classrooms. Please feel free to bring your grading policy or assessment strands from your school/district if you think it will be helpful in framing the conversation.
