Brian Vandenberg Posted almost 4 years ago Isn't it time to eliminate grades in education? I have to say I'm still agreeing with Gabe on this one. I've been to the site. I really do like your teaching strategies. Feedback is crucial, and having honest performance reviews just like in a job is very beneficial. The no rules, free structure thing will work with older kids in an honors class who are mature, and will also work with younger kids in an honors class because they are afraid to act out anyhow. I can't see how this method would motivate average high school students who REALLY just do not care. For appropriate classes this is a great teaching style. I just don't see why a grade can't be given in a performance review. If nothing else it would be an honest evaluation of them, a tangible figure they can work so they don't feel like you're just being nice or so they can make sure that their self-esteem is an accurate portrayal of their learning and effort. Figure out how to get colleges and employers to make important and correct decisions about who they choose with this method, or, assign grades with the ongoing narratives and I back this method fully.
