What We're Reading!
We're very excited to announce the Winter book for Teaching Channel's Book Club: Leaders of Their Own Learning: Transforming Schools Through Student-Engaged Assessment by Expeditionary Learning's Ron Berger. He shares a new way of thinking about how we can change the primary role of assessment -- from evaluating and ranking students to motivating them to learn.
