Helping students understand the meaning of a letter grade or a percentage is powerful. In my classroom we talk about the purpose of grades and how it can help determine how much we understand a concept or if we need to further our knowledge on a particular topic.
Grades can add such a stress for students. In my class we also talk about grades do not define who they are or how smart they are.
- Two formats of "You're More Than A Grade"
- Letters A-F with percentages and a sentence for students to make sense of the grade.
