|I'm retired now, but I'd still like to share these views of my former classroom. Here's the color wheel table, made from a table I rescued a few years back. The new art teacher is taking good care of it!|
My 6th graders were sort of middle school, sort of elementary school, so they needed a special set of grading guidelines. Their first assignment was creating a "passport" where they recorded their thoughts and observations on each assignment/project completed throughout the year. I used the passport as a place to record their grades. With the Common Core requirements, the new teacher has kept the concept of the passports but has had to make it a much more specific grading tool. I'm glad I retired in time to miss dealing with the over-emphasis on assessment and data. I prefer to spend my time with kids MAKING ART!
