About this item
Part of the Every Student Can Learn Mathematics series
Boost K-12 student achievement and math skills by enhancing your approach to mathematics homework and grading. This user-friendly resource is divided into two parts, each covering a key team action for mathematics in a PLC at Work™. First, you'll learn how to develop common independent practice assignments or math homework for formative student learning within a professional learning community (PLC). Then, discover how to work collaboratively to create quality equitable grading practices to help you evaluate independent practice effectiveness. The book features teacher team tools and activities to inspire student achievement and enhance grading routines as part of a formative student learning process.
