Diane Brenner , from TCEA, just wrote a very useful article noting the effectiveness of using Google and self-reported grading strategies. She sites John Hattie’s Research. I often hear about his work in Alice Keeler’s course.
Over the last few years, I have been integrating more peer and self-review activities into my class instruction. It doesn’t happen every day, but when it does, I am noticing powerful results.
Here is an example of what it looks like when I ask students to turn in a handout.
This is a classwork assignment. My students know they get complete credit for the assignment if they follow directions and try their best. I let them correct their work to engage them in the process.
Alice Keeler‘s Go Slow subscription classes and blog are great resources for coaching teachers who want to use self-reported grading and increase their effective strategy toolkit.
