    This is correct. I also heard someone talking about a "picture walk" and how Common Core is just teaching our kids to look at pictures instead of read. That's untrue. The "picture walk" is part of the Guided Reading Model which was developed before Common Core existed. And a picture walk isn't just looking at pictures.

    I'm not saying its necessarily unique, I'm simply saying its a poor standard to give credit to young children for getting the wrong answer to a question as logical as mathematics.

    Well, I could go with the trained educators I've been exposed to, or "some guy on the internet"


    Hmmm.....

    I agree with this. I also hate it when teachers give kids credit for "participating". Really? You're boosting their grade because they were there and said something? Stupid.

    I guess I could say I'll go with the trained educators I've been exposed to, but I'll settle for saying, decide for yourself.

    aren't we grading to differentiate them according to their performance
    that kid who participates - and is able to do so because he is on task - deserves recognition for that compared the the cohort who is drooling in the corner ignoring the teacher/presented lesson

    Actually really useful for getting students to pipe up about complex topics, who do not want to look stupid or who may zone out. We use it all the time to get students to come out and have extended conversations beyond one or two participants.

    In the example we were discussing the kid isn't getting credit for "participating". The kid is getting partial credit for demonstrating that they understand part of what they were taught.

    Yes, I know. I wasn't referring to your example.
