Professional Development: Standards Based Grading and Unwrapping the Standards
Over the past week I have enjoyed working with the Middle School Art, Music and PE educators in our district. Each content area met for a full day this past week to better understand Standards Based Grading and to begin "Unwrapping" our new National Core Arts Standards, National PE Standards and aligning with the Iowa Core. The discussions have been very rich revolving around student achievement and the whole child. While "Unwrapping" our new standards we had some very candid discussions regarding the focus on students creating, guiding and applying their learning. I cannot wait to continue these discussions over the course of this year!
