14 Tips to Doing Rewrites, Redos, and Reassessments the Right Way

Rating
0.0 stars

In Rick Wormeli’s article Redos and Retakes Done Right, he states “allowing students to redo assignments and assessments is the best way to prepare them for adult life.”
According to Wormeli, many teachers feel that denying students opportunities to show their full potential after providing substantial results builds ‘moral fibre’. These teachers have the mindset that there should be rigid deadlines for assignments and that marks should be taken off for late submissions, and even give zeroes in some situations. Wormeli counters by claiming that “these practices have the opposite effect: They retard student achievement and maturation.”
In Kenaston School, specifically in math and the senior sciences, students have the opportunity to redo assessments in 2011-2012. Teachers have taken Wormeli’s guidelines into consideration, applying some of his recommendations. Kenaston teachers advise that by incorporating Wormeli’s ideas into practice, teachers can make redos fair for both the student and teacher.

Marginal Cost/Benefit Decisions and the Investment Industry Watch video: DRUG SHORT ON NETFLIX in the Dirty Money Series (Series 1)This activity is meant to be used once Marginal Cost, Marginal Benefit and Diminishing Marginal Utility and Investing (short selling) are taught. The movie "Drug Short" is part of the Dirty Money Series 1 on Netflix. Underlying issues in this case are greed, ethics, corporate profit and efforts to maximize shareholder profit at all costs (even human life). This activity looks at the activites of pharmaceutical companies and their efforts to make money, yet disregarding the impact on people who rely on the medicine. Short seller investors "sold the stocks" of drug companies when the prices were high, predicting that there was unethical activities which would eventually bring the share price down. Short sellers make money by expecting share prices to fall, when they identify bad companies or unethical behavior (which is exactly what happened here).
