Tomorrow is the last day of the marking period. Today, I showed the students my massive spreadsheet with all of their Standards-Based grades. We will be doing reassessments on any skills they want, dating all the way back to the beginning of the year.
"Here's the deal for today. First, identify the skills that you want to reassess. Next, find which sections in the book correspond to those skills. I've put a list on the board so if you look at the skill, you can find where the practice can be found. If you have any questions or would like to go over anything, I'm here and happy to help."
I also told them that I thought they would be shocked to go back to stuff from the beginning of the year and see how easy it seems. The bleeding edge of learning should always be difficult, but looking back, the path should be clear.
The majority of the students today took advantage of the time to look back over older sections and agreed that it looked super easy. Hopefully, they will utilize the time well and be ready for tomorrow.
In unrelated news, one of the other teachers decorated the hallway in honor of the upcoming Steelers game.
She asked if I was a Steelers fan and when I said I wasn't into sports, she made me my own sign.
I love my coworkers.
