What Can Christmas Movies Teach Us About Assessment for Learning?

Submitted by Lori Jeschke, Superintendent, Prairie Spirit School Division, Saskatchewan

Our assessment team meets once a week to touch base, celebrate success, provide feedback, and to determine next steps. One of the highlights of our time together includes creating playlists. These lists usually reference the music we are listening to or perhaps the books on our nightstands. However, given the season at hand, our last meeting took our playlists to the movies scene. We identified favourite Christmas movies: Christmas vacation, Love Actually, Home Alone and Despicable Me…

When someone tweeted the article The Twelve Days of Christmas Break by Mary Peters, I immediately connected to our conversation around Christmas movies. I wondered…could anything be linked to assessment for learning?

Anything??

Apparently so…
