Are Grades Necessary for Learning?

I found this shortened video of Dan Pink on a Washington D.C. television show from Larry Ferlazzo's blog.  As most of you read Pink and I am extremely interested in the concept of learning versus grades (as we have discussed in class), I thought you all might find this interesting. . .





So my question for the class is this:  What would happen if we took grades out of the equation? Would kids learn more or less than they do now? Explain.

  1. Many good points made by Pink (not the singer, the guy in the video). Tough question...

  3. I cannot view the video, there is no link nor is it loading on the blog. Could someone post the link for me?
