Researching SBG

As I finished up my first year of teaching middle school math, I found myself being frustrated as to how the traditional grading system did not measure what students learned, but what they accomplished on a given day. Having grades on participation or homework or behavior I felt took away from having the students actually learn and master a topic or standard. Close to the end of the year, I found Standards Based Grading, and I was hooked.

Virtually every teacher blog that I have visited simply says, “I can’t explain SBG as well as this guy, so go here and read this.” I encourage you to do the same!


As I share my journey, I want to make public my Evernote notebook for you to follow, this will give you access to the things that are entering my brain, and hopefully will come out with a product worthy of using for this year.
