  1. So…I’m going to make the Interpersonal Skill grade worth 50% of the total quarterly grade. The category is set up in Total Points. To make things work a little better, I’m making the rubric start at 10pts and go down to 7pts. Anything below 7pts is failing (but I might fudge things a little and give some kids 5pts as their lowest).

    Any thoughts on how to apply the 10pts to the demonstrated behaviors rubric? Like Best is 10-9, nex7 8-7, etc. Math help! lol

  2. Yeah that is what we are wrestling with in my department. But I made a success with a district person today who kind of gets Krashen and she came to our PLC and asked about the language used to develop our lesson plans and I gave her jGR which appeared to slightly blew her mind and then I told her (in a nice way) that we know what we are doing so she needs to just take our lesson plans and go rewrite her own requests of WL teachers in the district, that language they use, all those terms, FROM OUR RUBRIC AND FROM OUR LESSON PLANS so that we don’t have to align with their language (which is alway cookie cutter). I told her to align with what we are doing in the WL team at Lincoln. I told her we ain’t gonna change and she was like 60% convinced and I happened to have a PQA-readied class (Tuesday story) coming in and I told her to observe and that class (3/4) rocked one out of the park on Anne’s Let’s Start! and she was convinced and left determined to reword what the district is saying across the board. She has the ear of lots of principals so I am happy with today’s work. Diana will also like this bc she is not heard too much at the district level. How can they hear us? They are too busy evaluating and assessing and such that they don’t have time to see what is really happening, at least in WL since in no way do we align with the Common Core fantasy! Basically I told her to leave us alone (Annick loved it), learn what we do, get more au courant on Krashen, and then write her district guidelines from what we already do. Call it backwards planning for the pedagogically challenged (administrators).
