No Homework, No Grades, No Punishment Resources

Three tenets of my educational philosophy are no/or very limited homework, no letter grades, and no punishment or rewards.  My passion for these run deep and I find myself continually reflecting upon it on this blog.  So behold, an index of posts related to these three topics.

  1. I’m all for speaking your mind and was about to read about your behavior chart alternatives. Limiting grades/homework and no punishment/rewards? What school district do you work in where this has been successful? I’d like to submit an application please!

    • I think if you read some of the resources then you can see how it can be implemented and what those terms mean. I work in public school districts here in Wisconsin and it has worked for me.— Sent from Mailbox

  2. I agree with you—I have been teaching for more than 20 years and I have don’t use rewards except for “unexpected/surprise”” special activities for the whole class! (Free time, extra computer time, add on recess, making/eating brownies/cookies. Unfortunately I do use “punishment”, but I think of them as more like consequences for behaviors, such as losing recess time to finish work and/or talk to me about inappropriate behaviors. I also have students call parents to meet with me, which I think to some students seems like a punishment, but to me it is consequences for behaviors that I need help in managing.
