TTT Episode 93: A Hot Take on Retakes and Workload Mindful Differentiation

Pete and John return feeling not-so refreshed after the break, then open with some somewhat disputable Tips to Teachers. 

Pete then looks at some of the ways we as teachers build a focus on self-improvement of our students, through allowing multiple test takes. Without falling into the trap of students outsmarting us and falsely inflating their marks. 

John tries to find the middle ground when it comes to differentiation. Trying to find something that supports all learners in the class, without labelling students or burdening teachers with an unsustainable workload.
