Featured Reading

Grading for Equity

Math Professor and CTL Faculty Liaison, Sonya Reichel, read Feldman's book, Grading for Equity: What It Is, Why It Matters, and How It Can Transform Schools and Classrooms.

Sonya found it to be very accessible and a great introduction to the history of the educational system in the United States.
