Today is my first day at the summer institute with Encompass. Very interesting meeting an array of teachers from across the United States.  


  • looking at pre-institute activities: what worked and what didn't?
  • looking at rubrics
  • taking risks: if we (members of encompass are hesitant, then how can we model this behavior for our students)
Here are a couple of questions from the morning:

What can we do better?

What type of assessments to give students? With standards based grading, how can I accurate give a grade to students to assess what they know?

Getting students to communicate their thinking and how to put that on a rubric?  Shift from answer to the process.  Get the students to value the process!

How assessment is used to see what students know and drive the learning process.

Students having a clear vision and that they trust their work because they have ownership.

How can help teachers see the process of assessing student work and that it is important to collaborate with other teachers.
