I am thankful for a long weekend. I really needed some time to get caught up on marking. You see, I am coming from an environment where the pace was very different. Currently we are moving through material faster than I have ever done before and that seems to come with a lot of assessment: both formative and summative. Formative assessment helps me to know where the students are at and provides valuable feedback as we go through and "FORM" the learning journey together. Summative assessment shows what they have learned at the culmination of the learning activities. It is a learning process for me and I need to find a good balance between assessment, activities, family time and life outside of work. You should find a number assignments being returned this weekend because I have an extra day to balance family and work. Please take the time and read the comments together - they have been provided to add ways to help improve as we move forward. There are comments in Google Classroom and comments on the actual assignments that have been submitted.
Enjoy your family this weekend. Sneak in a little homework time if you can so that they stay ahead of everything or catch up before quizzes and the the next set of assignments that head their way.
