A High School Teacher Unravels an Assessment Conundrum
8:57 am pdt
Recently, the challenges of combining objective and subjective assessments has been of interest to me. The following article
will be a free publication in the Education Newsletter this year. Headquartered at the university of Oregon, Professor emeritus
Dr. Robert Sylwester is the editor, to whom I am greatly indebted, for his guidance in developing this article for publication.
My hope is that it will generate discussion around educational reform. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have thoughts
or questions you would like to share.
John PW Hudson
Teacher, Educational writer
John PW Hudson is a retired teacher with an exciting new book out called "Pathways Between Eastern and Western
Education" published by Information Age Publishing in Charlotte, North Carolina, a highly respected and responsive
publisher of timely and authoritative educational books.
Between Eastern and Western Education" describes education from a global perspective. Mr. Hudson brings clarity
to the aims, purposes and functions of educational systems in the East and West, and makes surprising new definitions of learning
and teaching that help readers better understand how and why teaching and learning strategies succeed or fail. Packed with
anecdotes and insightful observations, Hudson makes bold statements intended to challenge our assumptions and expose us to
different ways of thinking about education, whether we are Western or Eastern educators. Hudson does not
intend this book to be a new blueprint for education; rather, it is an stimulating book which enables educators from around
the world to explore possibilities for improvement of the systems and beliefs they already have. 'To agree or disagree with
what I have written,' Hudson says, 'is the purpose of this book: to stimulate thought, kindle discussion and debate, and to
reignite the passion to seek better ways to educate. I also fully appreciate the challenges of teaching and have written this
book to be picked up from time to time to revisit the 'big picture' and celebrate your professional growth and personal satisfaction.'
Hudson is available for consultation or presentations on educational topics to a variety of audiences anywhere in the world.
