You’re our Teacher of the Week!
As a Grade 10-12 Mathematics teacher, in a high school of approximately 1400 students, Dennis sees a lot of students over the course of a week. Hundreds of students pass through his classroom doors, each unique in their learning journey.
Despite the volume of students, Dennis is doing a stellar job in providing personalized learning opportunities for his students. He is accomplishing this by empowering his students to be engaged in their learning. Dennis is using FreshGrade to leverage the learner to document their learning, demonstrate their comprehension and self-reflect on their performance.
“Students are uploading a variety of artifacts, such as assignments, "exit tickets," group activities, and photographs of themselves learning. They are using the comments to reflect on how the evidence connects to their learning. I am able to provide specific feedback through the comments, and continue the conversation with parents and students even after class is done for the day.
FreshGrade allows me to focus on the learning documented in the entire portfolio, which is a much clearer picture of a student's growth and learning.”
Thank you, Dennis, for recognizing and supporting the individual learner. You are an inspiration for all of us.
