Duprey - Secondary Grading Hacks for Project-Based Learning

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Much of the challenge of project-based learning in high schools stems from difficulty managing pedagogical logistics (planning, assessing, tracking, etc). This session aims to share daily, weekly, and project-length strategies that optimize student learning. In this session, I will tackle a key challenge that confronts secondary teachers doing project-based learning: how do you "grade" this kind of work? I will share several rubrics for writing that allow wide student choice while preserving rigor, strategies for successful student self-assessment (both written and conference-style), strategies to facilitate meaningful peer feedback and peer sharing of learning, before-and-after grade book examples, and some elementary strategies hacked for secondary (running record, readers'/writers' workshop).
