Set professional learning goals to explore and apply pedagogical approaches made possible by technology and reflect on their effectiveness.
I set professional learning goals to stay motivated about teaching and learning and continuously improve my practice. I want to expand my knowledge of standards-based grading practices and the available options for implementation in Schoology by June 2021. To reach my goal I used Michigan’s eLibrary to curate research around the topic of standards-based grading. By December of 2021 my goal is to answer several key questions: What is the history of grading? What are the barriers to system-wide change?
Expand my knowledge of standards-based grading practices by June 2022.
To reach my professional learning goal by June 2022 I developed a research plan. Using the Michigan eLibrary I will craft several research questions and identify credible sources where I will begin my research.
