Standards Based Grading

For the sake of artistry… Standards Based Grading = SBG

SBG, how can I explain it?
I’ll take you frame by frame it
To have y’all jumpin, shoutin, singin’ it
You down with SBG? Yeah, you know me!
Who’s down with SBG? Every last homie!

Thank you “Naughty By Nature” for putting into words what I hope to do… explain how I do it and why I like it, and hopefully inspire you to consider as well.

    Thank you for sharing all of this material. I have slowly been making my way toward SBG in my high school classes, but am going for it this year in my 8th grade classes too.
