Many #PE #teachers were ‘instructed/encouraged’ to give a passing grade to all #students at the end of the #school year for obvious reasons. While the #pandemic2020 rages on and the new school year is about to begin, we owe it to our students to let them know where they stand.

You can apply a rubric to just about any subject you can think of, from content testing to dance and everything in between. Don’t re-invent the wheel, modify existing rubric samples you can find everywhere on the internet to meet your specific lesson plan. #PE; #Pandemic; #COVID-19; #physednhealth
