What are some good resources for discussion boards?
Thanks, Eric for the suggestion about not using perfect grammar for discussions. I've had a lot of success with flipgrid so far.
Thanks for the suggestion, Heidi.
I’m fine with you asking the questions
We are giving pass-fail grades, making giving students feedback even more important. Feedback is usually more helpful than a grade.
Lucy Calkins also suggested remote learning as a good time to do running records with students. It serves as a check in as well as learning about students’ comprehension.
Ed Week has an interesting article on grading practices during this time. No clear recommendations but many issues to consider.
The article on Ed Week is dated April 1, 2020
Sandy, this is IMHO a good point. It can be very powerful and motivating for students to look back at their own work. And, a "bonus' of many online learning environments is that almost everything students do is captured. So, it's cool to look back at an online conversation from X weeks ago and have them reflect on how their thinking has changed and how what they've learned in the meantime has impacted how they see things.

Can Eric please list out some those resources he mentioned?
Possible future question-What are your thoughts on introducing new math content?
I apologize for the tech glitch and will answer the assessment questions off line and make them available online
