WE'RE SORRY, THIS SESSION IS FULL. Please check out our other professional development offerings.

In this session, Rick tackles important and sometimes controversial issues related to assessment, grading, and homework in a positive and constructive way. And when the session is over, we have continued learning opportunities for you and your colleagues back at school!

Your registration for the Sept. 12 session includes a copy of Rick's book, Fair Isn't Always Equal, and we will point you to free study guides, facilitator's guides, and resource materials that will help you if you choose to conduct a book study or PLC on assessment and grading.  To provide you with support as you pursue this work in your school, you will be invited to attend a series of three online meetings for discussion of assessment and grading issues. Participants will share their experiences and ideas with each other, and  Rick will join us for at least one of these sessions to respond to your questions. Online sessions will be held from 5:00- 6:00 pm on Sept. 30, Oct. 14 and Oct. 28.

You are encouraged to register for the workshop whether or not you intend to participate in the follow-up sessions.
