So this week felt like getting back into the swing of things. Rough start, but a strong finish. A couple of really long days for back to school night and some PD on Friday, but yoga, exercise, and decent classes are getting me through in relatively good mental health.
This week AP Stats agreed on a grading scale and 10% credit for practice work. Took feedback from all of my classes to make 80% the threshold for "completeness" on practice assignments. I had a heavy hand on the scale for that one; the vote was split about 50/50 between 70% and the higher choices.
First assessment in precal shows me we have some work to do with basics, but some signs of beginning to understand the rubric and attempts to include modeling in responses. Looking forward to looking through them closely and providing my first formal feedback tomorrow, and an in-depth lesson on how to produce proficient responses on Tuesday, along with an extensive model, self-assessment, etc. Should be good preparation for the real test on Thursday.
Also got to run my first Desmos Activity and got some student work up in my room to make it feel like a math class again.
Giving myself permission to take today (Saturday) off of school except for this blog.
