Mastery Grading & Culturally and Linguistically Responsive Teaching

I had the opportunity to sit down during our planning period with teacher leader and educator Cece Tolliver, M.Ed, LAT,ATC. Ms. Tolliver has lead staff PD during our schools implementation of Mastery Grading over the past three years. Ms. Tolliver is also the chair for our schools SIT team, (School Improvement Team) and continues to be a teacher leader in our school and district. 

During this podcast we discuss our schools implementation of Mastery Grading, and how this leads to equitable grading practices. She gives us in-site into what this looks like in her own classroom as a science educator.

We also discuss our schools implementation of culturally and linguistically responsive teaching practices via staff PD for our entire school, and what that looks like in terms of classroom management. In this podcast we also take a look at what it means to be a white educator in a predominantly African American and Hispanic school and its impact on our teaching practices.
