Link’n’Blogs – 12.1.17: The Emotional Weight of Being Graded

Related Content from And There Came A Day

I loved Lincoln Logs when I was a kid. Though I never entertained the idea that I would be a designer, engineer or architect, something about putting together these wooden and plastic pieces was simply simple fun. Connecting to ideas through the blogosphere seems similar to this pursuit, hence the title of this weekly post. Each Friday, I intend to post something interesting I’ve read out there on the internets. Hopefully others will find these posts as thought provoking as I have.

As students and teachers all over the country rocket toward Christmas Break, many will be completing final exams prior to the weeks off for the holiday. This made me consider the pressure of grades and grading both on students and teachers and called to mind a wonderful post by The Junior Senator on his blog Socratic Review (have you not subscribed yet!?!). Click the picture below to get his take on this challenge. This is a short, thought provoking and excellent piece.
