I am feeling a bit bogged down by the fact that I need "x" amount of grades per week in certain subjects. Basically, I am required to have 2 grades per week per subject. 30% Project Based Learning 40% Test 40% Classwork We do not grade homework. Some of this is easy. Weekly spelling test (although I take issue w/ weekly spelling tests), reading comp. and math are usually fine. Where I run into trouble is in Sci/SS. I feel like I am rushing through teaching (and especially guided discussion and writing extensions) just to "get a grade" in. Because PBL is a huge chunk of their grade, I want to do it right. I want to allow time for collaboration, research, trial and error, and reflecting. But I am so concerned with not have enough grades in that I am concerned I will be rushing through that as well. Any tips and/or words of wisdom would be so appreciated!
