Something about this class that I’ve struggled with is the fluidity of grades. The class is most certainly not about the number grade. It is not about a score or number assessment. It is truly based on learning, and the assessment is important and valid, but the class’s focus and emphasis is on the takeaway apart from the assessment. It is about truly potentially altering one’s perception of the world and people for years to come. This perception will influence how you as a teachers influences hundreds of kids to come. Although I’ve struggled with it not being about the numbers, I’m thankful for this because it made me see the relevance of the material.
