Get ‘er Done

While preparing for my (Cathy’s)class on assessment and evaluation, I came across this video.  I loved it. The title of this excerpt is Toxic Grading Practices, but I have re-titled it  “Get ‘er Done”, for this blog post in honor of a terrific line Dr. Doug Reeves  uses in his presentation.  The reason I found this video in the first place, was in answer to a question one of my student teachers posed in class.  She asked, “What should we do  if our students simply will not do the work assigned?”   Dr. Reeves suggestions are both refreshing and amusing.  It makes for a great conversation about accountability.  Just follow the link…
