In this Webinar

When a student walks into our classroom, we encounter a whole child, not just a label or a number. In this webinar, Starr Sackstein will explore ways that teachers can bring students into the assessment process to more equitably communicate learning. When students are our thought partners in planning and doing, class is more engaging and useful. Starr will (1) discuss the need to build relationships and create learning environments that honor the dignity of students; (2) talk about goal setting, reflection, and self-assessment and how these practices ensure clarity and commitment to learning; and (3) examine how these processes ensure personalized learning to help each child grow based on their needs.

Assessing with Respect: Everyday Practices That Meet Students' Social and Emotional Needs

In this timely and thoughtful call to action, author and educator Starr Sackstein examines the critical intersection between assessment and social and emotional learning (SEL), particularly as it affects students of color and other marginalized groups. The book addresses the five SEL competencies identified by the Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL)—self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship skills, and responsible decision making—and explains how teaching students to develop their abilities in these areas can help them improve their learning and assessment experiences.
