[SBG] Improved Introduction to Students: Meme Version

Last year I created a Prezi to help me teach students about Standards Based Grading (SBG). It went okay. One of the best things I think I did for the introduction was waiting to hand back at least one quiz so students had something tangible to think about, rather than this abstract discussion on grades. They were hit immediately with the question “what does this 3 mean on this quiz?!?”

I’ve improved the Prezi so much that I basically created a new Prezi and copied just a few items from the old one. I thought more about the flow of discussion in the class that I wanted to have and as a result included some memes that I shared before (and some new ones that I created). Oh, and I’m using ActiveGrade this year, so I’ll certainly blog about that in the future.

Oh, and I wanted to thank Brian Carpenter for making such a great Prezi on grades. I borrowed one item (the Practice = Myelin production bit) and some ideas from his Prezi.

Feel free to use anything from the Prezi, or the entire Prezi! It’s public and reusable 🙂
