Facilitator-in-Training: Beckie Bray Rankin
Date: Tuesday, March 5, 2024 at 7:00pm – 8:30pm Eastern Time
Teaching towards proficiency includes assessing students via authentic tasks. In a world driven by grades, how do we shift the conversation towards incorporating feedback and including processes for reflection as steps on the journey towards proficiency? Well-crafted rubrics embedded into the curriculum offer clear and consistent expectations for a variety of authentic assessments at different levels of proficiency. This 90-minute webinar opens the door to harnessing the power of rubrics to benefit students’ growth through strategies to adapt, create, and integrate rubrics into the norms of the class.
