Today’s summer book club selection is an amazing book written by an inspirational educator – Ron Berger’s An Ethic of Excellence.
I know at least two groups of educators who are reading this book as a shared faculty experience this summer and everyone is raving about it! Tomorrow we’ll share some more details from the text, but today to get your thinking started consider the following questions:
1. If you believe that standardized testing does not give the most authentic picture of students’ capabilities, what other ways can we measure student learning?
2. What motivates students to strive for excellence? How do we create a culture of excellence in our classrooms?
3. Does personalizing learning lead to more or less equity? Why?
