Grading Smarter Not Harder from the Author: Myron Dueck. All the talk of closing the achievement gap in schools obscures a more fundamental issue: do the grades we assign to students truly reflect the extent of their learning? In this lively and eye-opening book, educator Myron Dueck reveals how many of the assessment policies that teachers adopt can actually prove detrimental to student motivation and achievement and shows how we can tailor policies to address what really matters: student understanding of content. In sharing lessons, anecdotes, and cautionary tales from his own experiences revamping assessment procedures in the classroom, Dueck offers a variety of practical strategies for ensuring that grades measure what students know without punishing them for factors outside their control; critically examining the fairness and effectiveness of grading homework assignments; designing and distributing unit plans that make assessment criteria crystal-clear to students; creating a flexible and modular retesting system so that students can improve their scores on individual sections of important tests. Grading Smarter, Not Harder is brimming with reproducible forms, templates, and real-life examples of grading solutions developed to allow students every opportunity to demonstrate their learning. Written with abundant humor and heart, this book is a must-read for all teachers who want their grades to contribute to, rather than hinder, their students' success.

Charting A Course To Standards Based Grading from the Author: Tim R. Westerberg. What's the best way to ensure that grading policies are fair, accurate, and consistent across classrooms? How can schools transition to a grading system that better reflects what students are actually learning? Tim R. Westerberg makes this journey easier by offering a continuum of options, with four "destinations" on the road to improved grading and assessment. Destination 1 critically examines such popular grading mechanisms as the zero, extra credit, the "semester killer" project, averaging, mixing academic performance with work ethic, and refusing to accept late work, and explains how they undermine objectivity and instead result in widely divergent grades for comparable work--with major consequences for students. Destination 2 invites educators to put assessment and grading into the larger context of a districtwide guaranteed and viable curriculum and lays out the organizational conditions and necessary steps to accomplish this goal. Destination 3 brings parents and others on board with a multiyear implementation plan and community engagement strategies for introducing report cards that indicate student achievement by standards rather than--or in addition to--letter grades. Destination 4, competency-based education, involves a total rethinking of the nature and structure of school, leading to individualized education for all students. However far they choose to go, administrators and teacher leaders can turn to Charting a Course to Standards-Based Grading for the quick wins and long-term support and guidance they need to make the trip well worth the effort.

Target Based Grading In Collaborative Teams from the Author: Garth Larson. In order to make grading and reporting practices more meaningful and appropriate, schools must design core instruction to reflect both academic standards and specific academic and behavioral targets that clearly indicate what students must know and what they must be able to do. The authors' experience shows that taking this approach positively impacts teaching and learning. This six-page, quick-reference laminated guide is designed to help schools move beyond standards to target-based grading and reporting. In 13 clear steps, it walks collaborative teams through the process of: Prioritizing standards and breaking them into specific learning targets; Creating assessments that accurately measure the relevant standards and learning targets; Designing and delivering instruction that specifically addresses learning targets; Administering and analyzing assessments; Reassessing when there is evidence of new learning; Reporting proficiency levels against learning targets using a summative scoring rubricThe guide includes examples of proficiency scales, proficiency targets, progress trackers, and summative rubrics.

from the Author: Malala Yousafzai. Доля жінки в Пакистані визначена наперед: бути покірною дружиною, догоджати чоловікові й виховувати дітей. Але 1997 року народилася «інакша» дівчинка. Вона хотіла ходити в школу, носити яскравий одяг і не ховати обличчя. В цей час владу в її рідних краях, в долині Сват, захопив «Талібан». За найменшу провину перед «законом» терористи карали людей побоями і навіть смертю. Героїня і авторка цієї книжки розуміла важливість освіти і боронила права жінок, за що й отримала кулю в голову... Її звуть Малала. І це тільки початок її історії...

from the Author: Daniel James Brown. «Диво в Берліні» — дві майстерно зшиті сюжетні лінії, написані талановитим оповідачем. Перша оповідає історію простих американських хлопців, які в один із найстрашніших періодів в історії США — Велику депресію — відвойовують своє право на гідне майбутнє. Друга переносить нас до Німеччини, де Гітлер уже задумав свій найстрашніший план — Другу світову. Перш ніж розв’язати війну, він прагне приспати ворога: показати, що Німеччина гостинна, вільна і мирна держава. Задля цього керівництво країни вирішує провести Олімпійські ігри 1936-го року, куди, у складі збірної США з веслування, потрапляють наші герої. Створена на основі реальних подій, книга розповідає про дружбу, вірність і відчайдушну боротьбу добра та зла. А головне — проводить паралелі з сучасним світом, змушує замислитись над тим, що подібний сценарій може повторитися, або навіть повторюється вже сьогодні.

Work Smarter Not Harder from the Author: Paul Studtmann. This book teaches students how to get good grades in college. Getting straight A's is not magic: you will not be able to wave your hands and automatically get them. To get good grades requires effort. But following the methods in this book will greatly improve your chances. How do we know? Because we were students ourselves for more years than we care to admit. And we have been teaching at leading universities for a combined total of twenty years. We have seen brilliant students fail out of school, and we have seen those with average intelligence graduate at the top of their class. We know the ins and outs of academia. We know what makes professors tick. We know what strategies good students employ in order to get good grades. And most importantly, we aren't afraid of speaking the truth about these matters.
