Beginning May 14, 2012 and taking us through each Monday in May, June, and July, our Monday “Who’s Engaged” posts present the MyGrade GPA Exercise. Read Part 1 and Part 2. The Exercise encourages you to take a moment to reflect on your classroom practices by reviewing a statement and then using an A to F grade to rate your performance.

In Part 1 of this series we highlighted the importance of this exercise using findings from Black and Wiliam (1998) and Marzano (2003). Part 2 highlighted Hattie’s Visible Learning: A synthesis of over 800 meta-analyses relating to achievement presents the same goal by presenting what “what works best.”

When teachers commit to applying the actions from the MyGrade GPA Exercise in their classrooms, they regain their passion for teaching and move toward excellence. Participate in this week’s Exercise:
