Chalk Talk: The Importance of Grades
Students receive grades all the time in school – in every subject and on assignments, quizzes, tests and for marking periods or semesters. The grade, whether it is a letter (A) or a symbol (+), signifies how well your child performed. Students know this and expect it, as early as kindergarten. If students see a grade they did not anticipate, or even if they did, they probably know they have to explain their performance to their parents. What students may not understand is that this explanation is a way for parents to be involved in their schooling, whether the work was done well or poorly. Parents and their children should discuss grades so that everyone understands what the “questions” or “explanations” really mean. Whether your student gets a poor grade very few times or frequently, talking to your student about these grades can make a big difference in how they interact with you when it comes to receiving one. Parent involvement is always encouraged by teachers and schools as a means for showing students their parents are interested in their activities, therefore involving students more in the actual work.
