Implementing SBG in World Languages
Standards-based grading is on everyone’s mind these days. What does it take to make the shift? Practitioners from around the county have worked to put together a day-long workshop to help administrators, curriculum directors, department heads and world language teachers explore one approach toward this goal. In this interactive workshop participants examine the modifications that a district or department needs to consider in order to move to standards-based grading. Following the formal presentation, facilitators will work with district teams (studio time) to begin to develop a plan for their district. It is highly recommended that districts send a team consisting of administrators and teachers to this workshop.
Participants should bring a laptop or device to the workshop.
Participants will receive:
guidelines and considerations for implementation
sample student/parent communication forms
sample performance assessments
tips and examples for gradebook setups
