Kathleen + Caren

Are on the Map

Meet Caren and Kathleen, authors of the book Rethinking Letter Grades and master educators. Their goal, to provide the best learning environments for students, motivated them to create a five-step process of teaching and assessing using “Learning Maps.” This process, creating “big ideas,” describing levels of performance, and selecting and matching evidence of learning to descriptions, clearly showed students their strengths and helped them to succeed.

Building and using learning maps is the foundation of QUIO. Creating learning maps may be a new process for you, and you may have questions along the way. We have provided FAQ here for you, but if you don’t find what you are looking for, just ask. Caren and Kathleen are here to answer your questions.

“…students with involved parents, no matter what their income or background, [are] more likely to

  • earn higher grades an test scores, and enroll in higher-level programs.
  • be promoted, pass their classes, and earn credits.
  • attend school regularly
  • have better social skills, show improved behavior, and adapt well to school.
  • graduate and go on to postsecondary education.”
