Grading Smarter Not Harder.
This keynote is an overview of Myron’s best-selling book, ‘Grading Smarter Not Harder – Assessment strategies that motivate kids and help them learn’. The audience will get a distinct flavor for the tone of the book as well as a good idea for what we could do differently in the areas of grading, unit plans (targets), homework, retesting and creativity. Myron tackles why we need to consider changes to traditional grading and assessment routines, and provides a look at the tools that can help pave the way for effective change. Overall, the importance of building strong relationships is emphasized.
