A new endeavor

As my one word for 2014, I chose Courage. This year I have decided to be courageous both inside and outside my classroom. Courageous for not only the learning of my students, but for myself and other professionals in the education world.

This summer I will be embarking on a new endeavor and I hope you will join me! I am ready to continue some of the wonderful conversations I have had with educators from around the world by hosting a Standards Based Learning and Grading Summit in the Chicagoland area.


This will be a great opportunity for learning and professional growth. I will be presenting and facilitating discussions surrounding the following topics:

  • Purpose(s) of grading
  • Writing standards
  • Unpacking standards
  • Standards based learning
  • Formative and summative assessment
  • Reporting and separating process (behaviors), growth, and achievement
  • Impact of Standards Based Learning and Grading
