Indefensible Education Malpractices

January 9, 2014 by Tunya

From the book, Educators on Trial, James Leary

  • Giving a learning assignment as punishment
  • Punishing the whole class for the actions of a few
  • Using grades to manipulate or discipline students
  • Grading students on a curve (so many As, Bs, regardless of the achievement of the students
  • Tests that do not cover material taught
  • Advancing students who have not learned the prerequisites
  • Prescribing the same material to all in a wide-ability class
  • Assigning meaningless homework
