[Teacher-talklearning] session 4

I really enjoyed this session on MI (multiple intelligences). This is a theory that most teachers and schools I believe center their instruction around...and is the basis for differentiated instruction itself. What is difficult for me, is the assessment bit. Students are learning through differentiated instruction so everyone has the potential to understand something. But if we also need to assess their learning based on their ability to prove to us they understand, is it fair to give the same grade to a student who writes a three page essay, to another student who makes an illustration? I'm wondering if students would react to that idea. They may be okay with it, if they know their strength. I think teachers really need to know the students in order to let that happen. All of my classes are half year classes, and I meet many of them for the first time, so I never really feel like I know them well enough by the time the class is over.
