Yay! We have two PD days!
It’s been storming like crazy and the town is wet and cold. I took the quiet afternoon to finally make my rubric poster. It will help students evaluate their own work and each others’. Developing self-evaluations and having students learning how to self-evaluate is what teachers call metacognition. It helps to drive an individual’s intrinsic motivation if s/he feels that s/he has control over his/her learning.
I used the same colour code as the scale on ActiveGrade.com, the standards-based grading tool where I keep my grades. Still haven’t finished reading Marzano’s book yet, but yes, I will try to share more of what I learn from my book.
