Middle-school history teacher Hadley Ferguson in this blog post answers questions about a recent post in which she wrote about her decision to eliminate grades. Ferguson says that the approach likely would work better at the middle-school level than in high schools, where there is a greater focus on students' grade point averages. She also writes that in a class without grades, midrange and struggling students may feel free to experiment more without the fear of failure.
Teacher: Students can experiment more in a no-grades classroom
