Session Materials: WCPSS Summer Leadership Conference

For the first time in it seems like forever, I’ll be making a presentation close to home!  On Tuesday, August 2nd, I’ll be sneaking out during my planning period to talk about student involved assessment at the 2016 Summer Leadership Conference hosted by the Wake County Public Schools.

Here are my session materials:

Our Students CAN Assess Themselves

In the spring of 2012, Canadian educational change expert Dean Shareski issued a simple challenge on his blog when he wrote, “So I’m wondering if you’re ready to let your students assess themselves. Not as some experiment where you end up grading them apart but where you really give the reigns over to them?” Dean’s challenge resonated with sixth grade teacher Bill Ferriter, who had always been dissatisfied with the grade-driven work being done in his classroom. This session will introduce participants to the tangible steps that Bill has taken to integrate opportunities for self-assessment into his classroom as a result of Dean’s challenge.
