Students are more than their academic grades, you know it and their parents know it. The progress they make in social-emotional learning and character development is essential to their success in school and in life. But while educators have made great strides in improving grading for academic achievement, weve left too many teachers still guessing when it comes to outdated behaviour ratings and comment sections. Thats where this book comes in. Grounded in research and in the authors work with teachers and administrators, it offers guidance on retooling report cards to better reflect the whole child, integrating SEL and CD into any school- or district-wide grading system.
