On Monday, #FormativeSummit speaker Paul Solarz hosted an awesome #formativechat focused on the topic of his session…helping students focus on improvement rather than grades! Here’s Q1 from it! We’d love to hear your thoughts
A1-Building relationship with each S I feel is the best way. Giving feedback that is effective and timely and observing how Ss approach their learning can help us assess effort. Also providing a voice and choice in their learning can reflect effort levels. #formativechat
I think one of the best ways to improve student’s effort is to implement work time, programs, apps, exploration activities with interest pieces. My students are always willing to put in more effect when the topic or task interests them.
