STANDARDS-BASED GRADING IN IOWA'S K-12 SCHOOLS

Thursday, September 17, 2020 - 12:30pm-1:30pm

Presenter: Matt Townsley (Educational Leadership), co-author of Making Grades Matter: Standards-Based Grading in a Secondary PLC

Standards-based report cards have become the norm for Iowa elementary schools, and a growing number of Iowa's secondary schools are implementing standards-based grading (SBG) practices. This trend has already impacted our work with college-aged Iowans, and will shape our preparation of future Iowa educators. In this 60 minute workshop, we will discuss key principles of SBG, why schools are moving towards it, and the implementation barriers educators are experiencing.

 

WOMEN ALSO KNOW STUFF – A CONVERSATION ABOUT WOMEN IN THE ACADEMY

Thursday, September 24, 2020 - 12:00pm-1:00pm

Guest Scholar: Christina Wolbrecht (University of Notre Dame) | Facilitator: Carissa Froyum (UNI, Sociology)

Scholars who identify as women remain underrepresented in the academy, and underrepresented relative to their presence in terms of citations, syllabi, speaking engagements, publications, and visibility as experts in the media. Guest scholar Christina Wolbrecht will talk briefly about the causes and consequences of these realities, and the work of #WomenAlsoKnowStuff in addressing some of those inequities in political science, followed by a Q&A discussion.

Christina Wolbrecht has authored or co-authored books and articles on the politics of women's rights, women as political role models, and the representation of women. She is co-editor of the journal Politics & Gender and is on the Executive Committee of Women Also Know Stuff, an organization dedicated to promoting the work of women political scientists. Wolbrecht is professor of political science, director of the Rooney Center for the Study of American Democracy, and C. Robert and Margaret Hanley Family Director of the Notre Dame Washington Program.
