Formative assesments are administered frequently throughout a unit to track students understanding. Summative assessments are typically projects and essays that demonstrate students knowledge.

I always say formative is to INFORM my teaching. They’re short checks to help me understand where my students are at. Summative is the larger, “final” of a unit that shows what they learned

Monday Morning rumination: unsolicited advise is criticism.

Much to reflect on with this topic. Last week I was told in a 1:1 with a new contact that I was “too direct”. After some time chewing on the conversation I was struggling to place the emotions I was feeling. Turns out I was feeling guilty and shame for being me, for taking up space. Lesson of the week: unsolicited advice is a criticism of you, a micro aggression of who you are, and being “too much”. What would you do??

I have been working in education for over 20 years. I am now finding it hard to remember students’ names from previous years, including last year. I hope this is because I have taught so many students through the years and not that I am going crazy! It is disheartening to have a student so excited to see you and you can’t even remember their name!
