'World's best teacher' does not believe in tests and quizzes - PBS NewsHour

'World's best teacher' does not believe in tests and quizzes - PBS NewsHour | School-based Professional Learning | Scoop.it
For 25 years, Nancie Atwell has run a small, independent K-8 school in Maine, where the goal is not just teaching young students, but also teachers.
deniseroberts's insight:

Excellence in teaching is not an obscure or unfathomable feat.  It's a combination of integrity, a willingness to tailor instruction to each child you teach, an inherent curiosity, and, in the words of Nancie Atwell, giving students' choice in what they want to learn.  In this PBS interview, we get a glimpse into Atwell's school, The Center for Teaching and Learning as well as hear from her about her philosophy about the educational field.

Rick Wormeli: Standards-Based Grading - YouTube

Rick Wormeli, author of Fair Isn't Always Equal, tackles the issue of zeros on the 100 point scale.
deniseroberts's insight:

The argument Rick Wormeli makes for standards-based grading is very relevant.  For those teachers and administrators who still believe in giving a "0", I ask you this...Are your taxes evaluated subjectively?   A zero has nothing to do with the effort a child has taken in the attempt to do the task.  This conversation is worth having across school districts and schools.  What is acceptable?
