Rebecca Bush George replied to Scott Habeeb's discussion Pretend You're a "Grade Coach"
"I agree with the general observation that the assigned points are skewed. The summative assessment should far outway any lesser activity. I, too, have always had trouble with a notebook check being used as a major assessment grade. A flipped…"

Rebecca Bush George commented on Scott Habeeb's blog post Ideas for AFL/SBL Exit Slips

Rebecca Bush George replied to Scott Habeeb's discussion AFL-Related Discussion Question - SHS Faculty Meeting 11/28/12

Rebecca Bush George replied to Scott Habeeb's discussion SHS Staff Development - 3/10/10 - Results of AFL Survey
"Almost everyone at our table felt that our school's focus on AFL has helped us better prepare our students for summative asssessment and that our students' grades reflect our use of AFL strategies to prepare them."
