Event Overview

Join us for the Grading for Equity Institute on July 13-15 from 9am-12pm PST (12p-3p EST), for an interactive examination of the theory and practices necessary to improve grading for all students, particularly those historically underserved. Learn how more equitable grading can create stronger teacher-student relationships and more caring, engaging, and less stressful classrooms, and leave with plans for implementing more equitable grading in classrooms this fall.

Our Goals:

  • To understand the history of our current approaches to grading, and recognize the ways in which our continued use of those practices undermines equity and restricts how we want our students to experience learning and how we want to teach

  • To learn equitable grading practices that are more accurate, bias-resistant, and motivational, and envision how we might implement those practices into our classrooms and contexts

  • To reflect on previous experiences and beliefs with grading, and find connections and disconnections between those experiences and more equitable grading practices

  • To understand the challenges and imagine the possibilities of equitable grading, particularly during remote learning during a pandemic

Each day’s session will blend synchronous, online presentations and breakout group discussions with offline breaks for readings, videos, and written exercises and reflections (and to get fresh air away from the screen!).

Led by Joe Feldman, author of Grading for Equity, and designed primarily for middle school and high school teachers, as well as school and district leaders.
