Thinking About Your Approach to Grades

I tried a Google Site for education/teaching stuff this past year and hated it, so I'm migrating the teaching posts I put there here.

This is a great article about thinking or rethinking your approach to grades:

I think one of the most important things as a teacher is to realize there should be a reason for everything you do. And you should be transparent to your students about this.
  • Why do you have the grading system you do?
  • Why these assignments and not others?
  • Why do you grade the way you do?
While I know it's easy at the end of the semester to get buried in the current semester it's important too to look ahead, and see what you need/want to do to improve your practice in the future.
