On September 16, David Schouweiler served as a virtual guest speaker to a Lenoir-Rhyne University course of undergraduate and graduate pre-service teachers. The course is designed to explore issues and solutions related to assessment. Mr. Schouweiler shared his experiences and expertise with standards-based grading. He was able to help university students understand what standards-based grading looks like in action and provide useful examples and lessons learned.
Dr. Jayme Linton, professor at L-R shared, “His presentation provided a powerful learning experience for my students and gave them resources they can use in their own classrooms. I have received many positive comments from my students since Mr. Schouweiler’s presentation. They very much appreciated hearing from his experiences and were grateful for his willingness to be share.” Dr. Linton expressed her gratitude to Mr. Schouweiler for his “commitment to the growth and development of other educators.” She also commended Newton-Conover City Schools for growing teacher leaders who, in turn, reach out to grow others.
