Google Apps for School-Home Connections
Working in an alternative public school designed to promote parent involvement, I am constantly looking for ways to build relationships with families and be more transparent about my practice, so that parents can support students in the classroom and at home. Google Apps have been an essential tool for me as I gather information with Google Forms, schedule events with Google Calendar, and share resources with Google Drive and YouTube.

My Experience trying Standards Based Grading
In this session, I will describe my goals for using standards based grading in my algebra and geometry classes. These include supporting growth mindset, promoting meta-cognition and eliciting motivation with the "gamified" aspect of SBG. I will discuss typical pitfalls, how I work it, and how I am able to give letter grades when it comes time for report cards. I will spend much of the session discussing how to support a standards based classroom with formative assessment.
