    Your grading policy is interesting and close to what I have been working on. Although for my class we talk about meeting standard or not and then grades are based on how many standards you met for the term. If you meet all standards or all standards but one then you get an A. For every standard you don’t meet after that it lowers your grade by a letter. I have between 5 – 7 standards each term.


    My school unfortunately does not have built in intervention time to our school day. This is something that we are starting to bring up with administrators as my building continues to have grading conversations and concerns about student engagement.


    Have you seen the Facebook group Teachers going gradeless or the twitter chat #tg2chat? They share many of the grading ideas that you are talking about.
