My biggest takeaway was right off the bat at #1. Five years ago when I was in the classroom, I thought giving students multiple ways of showing what they know is by retesting and giving the same assessment, but with different numbers. Being a “math person”, I wanted my gradebook to look nice and neat with no blanks. I wish I would have gotten over that back in the days so I could have given multiple methods for students to show what they know.
This is also something that I have difficulty getting through to my teachers I coach. What are the best ways to get co-workers joining in on this idea? How do I get them on board with providing multiple ways for students to show what they know?
