Shifting the Focus Away from Grades to Learning

Imagine a world where the energy of our students went into learning rather than just getting good grades. Our school policies and our teaching and grading classroom practices can help to keep the focus on learning or bring the focus back to learning if our students have become hyper-focused on grades. In this breakout, Sharon discusses what grades are not and what they should be, and who benefits from grades. She also evaluates classroom practices to determine whether they encourage a love of good grades or a love of learning. This workshop is practical for any classroom teacher from lower elementary to high school.
