"Grading Matters at Least One Order of Magnitude More Than You Think it Does" will be presented by Shawn Cornally, a math and science teacher in rural Iowa. He daily fears that his students are bored and that it's his fault. He believes in lessons that teach themselves and grades that only reflect learning. This event is open to all future and current teachers, esecially those in STEM-based fields, and to anyone interested in standard-based grading.
