For the first time in my career, I did not use letter grades with my students this year (aside from what shows on the report cards). We provided a lot of oral feedback to each other instead. As a result of this, I notice that the students are more focused on the “journey” than on the “destination”. This is completely amazing and is transforming my teaching.
