With foreword by Cassandra Erkens

The assessment process can be a rich experience for you and your students. With Softening the Edges, you'll discover how to design and deliver differentiated instruction and assessment to address learners' diverse intellectual and emotional needs. By creating an effective assessment architecture, you can ensure your students are invested in their own learning and have the confidence to face any learning challenge. Examine how to use self-assessment, formative assessment, summative assessment, and preassessment in ways that cultivate a positive culture of learning.

This book will show you how to use assessment responsibly to build enriching relationships among teachers and students:

  • Spot the indicators of hard and soft edges in classroom practices to differentiate instruction and assessment for learning.
  • Learn how to educate for the whole child to meet students' cognitive, physical, and ethical development needs and support their social and emotional learning.
  • Examine the importance of a learning continuum to smoothly guide students and increase student engagement and positive learning experiences.
