I like how you said “assessment is power not punishment.” In my years of teaching I felt like the grade would get students more interested in learning or paying attention in class. But after years of trying to instill fear in students about grades or tests to get them to pay attention I realize I went about it all wrong. It goes back to first creating a lesson that simulate’s the hero’s journey so students are interested and engaged rather than scared into learning for a grade. I’m interested in learning about how to use assessments as a tool in giving students power.
