Welcome back to the Sustainable Teacher Podcast, and today we have a return guest, my husband, Bill Rice. He was first on the podcast back on episode 39, so not too long ago, where we talked about his perspective as principal and husband to a sustainable teacher - so if you haven’t yet, you’ll want to go back and give that a listen.
In this episode, though, we are focusing in on a particular subject, and that is grading. Specifically, the meaning of grades and how a teacher could be more aware and intentional around what it means when they give a student a specific grade.
This is not a light conversation, and there are certainly fourteen other conversations (or podcast episodes) we could have from this one interview.. And maybe some day we’ll go there, but today we’re focusing on the work Bill has recently done in his research on the meaning of grades, and what it’s been to just scratch the surface on this issue.
