Teaching is the profession that teaches all the other professions. ~ Author Unknown

My goal is to reveal one teacher's humble journey of self-reflection, critical analysis, and endless questioning about my craft of teaching and learning alongside my middle school students.

"The dream begins with a teacher who believes in you, who tugs and pushes and leads you to the next plateau, sometimes poking you with a sharp stick called 'truth'." ~ Dan Rather

Exciting Classroom Management Webinar on 3/2 from 2-3 p.m.

Creating Effective Classroom Assessments

K-12 education abounds with discussion of "data-driven decision making." Successfully using data to inform instruction starts with creating effective assessments, especially as states and districts begin to transition to the Common Core State Standards. Discover that—whether teachers are practicing formative assessment, creating quizzes or end-of-unit tests, or selecting vendor-based items and tests—addressing three key areas can make a real difference in producing actionable results.

You will hear a practical discussion of the following:

(1) Defining the purpose of your assessment—starting with the end in mind;

(2) Aligning your assessment to the standards—and, ideally, curriculum and instruction; and

(3) Ensuring item/test quality.

And you will see how to avoid common mistakes and easily improve the quality of your classroom assessments. Equally important, we will discuss how professional development and coaching can help educators build capacity in this essential skill.
