I am very thankful that you are so willing to share your advise and hard work. I have introduced your site to many teachers in my building.
I read this site with intrigue. I will buy the book you listed here [Day-to-Day] and maybe it will answer my question, but just in case, here is my wondering...
Our district uses state standards as our report cards and we have to align our grade book with the same standards. We have to have at least 10 pieces of evidence per standard. What I find challenging is aligning what I do in RW with these state standards for my grade book. Have you encountered this dilemma?
Obviously, what we do in RW meets the state standards, I just feel overwhelmed with my all these pieces I use for authentic assessment and then scurrying around to plug in grade book evidence. I feel like I am in a constant state of assessment organization and it takes up my time for actual planning/prepping/creating lessons.
Thanks for any time you give to this answer. Perhaps, you have already tackled this topic and have a site to send me to visit. If not, perhaps you can add this to your blogging idea list?
