A Good Reread

Over this past break, I reread the book 15 Fixes for Broken Grades by Ken O'Connor, which was followed by a discussion with Ms. Johnson today. We agreed that this is a book that can lead to both and emotional and philosophical discussion. I believe it is a must read for anyone who is involved with teaching and learning: school and home!

Another thought provoking book on the same topic is Rick Wormeli's Fair Isn't Always Equal. This books gets to the heart of meeting students needs and providing essential feedback.

These two coupled together are a great combination to spark the fire in any discussion!
