SHORT SUMMARY: This online, self-paced, 2 unit course titled “Standards Based Grading for High School Teachers” provides educators like you with a comprehensive understanding of one of the newest and hottest educational trends called Standards Based Grading (SBG). Upon completion of this course, you will be prepared to begin the school year with a completed syllabus outlining your policies AND you will have your first unit completely prepared for implementation the following school year.
DETAILED SUMMARY: Throughout 30 hours of coursework, participants can expect to obtain a much more thorough understanding of:
- The issues with traditional grading and how they are inequitable
- The basics of how standards based grading works
- How other educators across the country are implementing SBG
Aside from the knowledge you will acquire, you will be given ACTUAL work time where you get to create your OWN resources (based on your individual course subject, student population, and individual school policies) that will best help you create and enact a standards based grading plan that is personalized JUST FOR YOU.
Whether your administration is requiring you to make the transition to SBG OR you love SBG and plan to make the switch on your own accord, this course is for you.
Culminating in the focused adaptation and preparation for SBG of a unit of your choice, this course empowers educators to identify the strengths and weaknesses of their current classroom curriculum and make improvements that are immediately integrated in the classroom.
TRANSLATION: If you are a high school teacher with any kind of relationship with SBG AND you need units, this course is for you.
