Level: Intermediate
Grades: All

View Extensions Extensions
Breakouts come in all shapes and sizes... You can use all kinds of bells and whistles or just ease into the concept slowly. If you think you know all about Breakouts, think again! If you think a Breakout means that you have to turn your whole classroom into an Escape Room: you will be pleasantly surprised at these other avenues. If you are afraid to try Breakouts, then this class is for you. If you already tried them and are looking to take it up a notch, come and discuss! This workshop will cover Breakouts in a differentiated style. After running a 12-week Breakout course for teachers, I learned how teachers of all skill levels can start using Breakout methods in their classrooms. Digital Breakouts through BreakoutEDU, DeckToys or Google Sites are all great options Simple breakouts with one topic or deep comprehensive breakouts will be covered. Learn about a variety of clue-making and designing tools, as well as sandbox sites with many different Breakouts. Take home lists, templates, and tools.

Level: Beginner
Grades: K-5, 6-8, 9-12, All
The ideas in this session will benefit you if you're already on your way toward a gradeless classroom or if you just want to start grading less and enhance your feedback. Indeed even if you're just curious and want to push your thinking about what fewer grades and authentic assessment can look like, this session has something for you. In this session, participants will learn about technology tools and resources to transform your letter and number grades into a student centered, feedback focused environment. We will explore how a transition to a gradeless classroom might go from piloting a single gradeless unit to ditching the letter and number system entirely. Participants will also learn and share specific strategies for going gradeless or grading less even if your district has strict grading requirements. Is going gradeless in today's world revolutionary? Perhaps. Crazy? Some might say so. Impossible? Only if you don't try. Come see that you aren't the only one who wishes they could throw out the grades and focus on feedback and learn how to put those revolutionary and transformative ideas into action.
