Crescendo Education Group is a team of consultants–current and former teachers and school / district administrators–who believe that the most powerful way to improve student achievement, particularly for historically-underserved populations, is to create powerful learning experiences for the education professionals in schools and districts.
We have two strands of work:
Create learning opportunities for teachers and school/district administrators to reflect on their grading and assessment systems, and give them tools to test grading approaches within their own classrooms that are more accurate, fair, and that actually improve student learning. Through a series of professional learning activities, discussions, and coaching, we help educators to think more critically not only about their grading systems, but how they assess students, empower them, and build a more successful classroom.
Coach and thought-partner with principals and district administrators, focusing on creating and strengthening systems, policies, and practices that support all students to be college and career ready.
