Hey here is a helpful checklist of assessment approaches from Natalie. Best thing about reading and writing (#literacies are life) the methods that lead to knowledge growth also lead to personal growth: https://nataliecaldwellteacher.wordpress.com/2019/05/11/assessment-module/

One key aspect we often overlook in classroom is note taking and synthesizing. Need to provide earlier opportunities for multiple text reading. Here is a presentation on notebooks I use in content areas with older students: https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1O1FlnDlMni9qPb4UR3tfRGPgH8AgQbH98w7Yai-ZDBM/edit?usp=sharing

So what I always tried to measure in my class when working through novels or an interconnected reading and writing unit was the process that got students to the product rubrics are supposed to measure.

Greg McVerry

Assessing comprehension is tricky and as students get older we then mix in reading and writing as primary way we ask students to demonstrate comprehension is through written responses. So are you measuring what they understand about a text or a student's ability to construct a response?

Greg McVerry

more subjective a measure and you will find the more open to bias but even the most objective measures can often explain zip code as much as ability.
In your reading classroom I want you to embrace your subjectivity, passionately care for every child in your class

After reading this https://bastianallgeier.com/notes/back-from-the-dead I am hoping we can get a theme or even better just have microformats native in @getkirby starter templates. @Sebsel made a tool kit: https://github.com/sebsel/indieweb-toolkit but I think I want mf2 in my snipets, blueprints, and templates

@iamjessklein after reading @goifoundation application for the @wikimedia education greenhouse and the difficulty of connectivity in Ghana during our edit-a-thons the new mobile editor should have service workers baked in for offline editing.

@ClareLandrigan I have been reading all the post but have held off on writing reflections or thoughts about each post as I didn't want to crowd out voices in a space meant for teachers of color. I haven't seen many voices using the posts as a platform

@oliverskrewe Added to the challenges wiki page: https://indieweb.org/challenge#See_Also @alfredtatutm often writes about restoring the tradition, lineage and honor found in reading and writing, let's do the same for blogging so they never have to be rebuilt

@beka_valentine thank you...sent me into this rabbit hole reading about transclusion...always wondered how to go about doing it (without knowing what it was called).
