The Summer Series with Tom Schimmer

By Chey Cheyney & Pav Wander

Chey and Pav, two experienced middle school teachers from the Greater Toronto Area in Ontario, Canada, take listeners through the in’s and out’s of the field of Teaching, Learning and Leadership. Through their anecdotal, yet often comedic banter, laced with caring insightfulness, they take their audience into a conversation that is surely eye-opening and entertaining, while tackling some of the real, and ever-changing issues that exist in Education.

In the sixth episode of The Staffroom Podcast Summer Series, Chey and Pav talk to Tom Schimmer, educational author, keynote speaker, & consultant from Surrey, British Columbia, Canada. Tom talks about the evolution of assessment practices, going gradeless, and the value of feedback in the classroom. 
A phenomenal conversation to get us thinking more about Assessment and Feedback in great detail!
