There are some schools who are abandoning giving grades to students as they believe that a simple letter or number does not demonstrate a student’s learning ability. However, majority of the schools in the US and other countries in general use report cards as a primary means of measuring a child’s progress in school. Reason being is that many schools and teachers believe that grades measure the student’s understanding in a specific subject.
Today’s we are discussing whether students should be given grades in school and whether they are important or not when it comes to learning.

Our guest on Metalsmith Benchalk on Thursday, April 23rd, 2015 at 3:00 PM PST is San Fancisco jewerly artist, Sarah Graham.
Please join us for this live interview and participate by logging onto the chatroom or by sending a message to Whaley Studio's via Facebook Instgram or Twitter.
By incorporating innovative materials with her exceptional design sense, Sarah Graham creates jewelry that is unlike anything else; organic, textural, with a muted palate that is subtly feminine, yet substantial; unique, yet universal in its appeal. The natural inspiration behind the jewelry – whether cast directly from Jacaranda Pods and decayed wood or rendered in wax from a microscopic view of single cell marine organisms – gives her designs a texture and feel that makes them infinitely wearable. But it is the matte black finish of oxidized cobalt chrome juxtaposed with 18k yellow, rose and white gold, set with colored diamonds, that is its’ most eye-catching element.
Sarah’s statement making jewelry is exciting and elegant with a constant stream of new designs flowing from her studio every year. This, along with Sarah’s unique combination of business and retail experience, traveling, a rigorous apprenticeship and her dedication to providing amazing customer service to her clients, ensure many more years of success for Sarah Graham Metalsmithing.
Sarah is currently vice president of the American Jewelry Design Council. She currently resides in San Francisco , CA and works with a staff of seven at her Dog Patch neighborhood studio.
The Total Tutor Neil Haley will interview William Dickerson.
William Dickerson is a writer and director whose debut feature film, "Detour," was hailed as an “underground hit” by The Village Voice, an “emotional and psychological roller-coaster ride” by The Examiner, and nothing short of “authentic” by The New York Times. He self-released his metafictional satire, "The Mirror," which opened YoFi Fest’s inaugural film festival in 2013 and he alsoe recently completed his third feature film, "Don’t Look Back," for MarVista Entertainment. His award-winning work has been recognized by film festivals across the country. His first book, "No Alternative," was declared, “a sympathetic coming-of-age story deeply embedded in ‘90s music” by Kirkus Reviews. He currently serves on AFI’s Alumni Executive Board and is a Faculty Member at the New York Film Academy.
Based on his challenges while making his debut “microbudget” film, Detour, Dickerson walks the reader through every aspect of making a film in Hollywood. From style direction to financial obstacles, it’s a detailed guide of the experiences of up and coming filmmakers in Los Angeles.
Kirkus Reviews said Detour: Hollywood is “A breezy guide that takes readers inside the sometimes-hair-raising world of do-it-yourself filmmaking, capturing its many frustrations and challenges.”
The Total Tutor Neil Haley will interview David Stone.
A full century later, our picture of World War I remains one of wholesale, pointless slaughter in the trenches of the Western front. Expanding our focus to the Eastern front, as David R. Stone does in this masterly work, fundamentally alters—and clarifies—that picture. A thorough, and thoroughly readable, history of the Russian front during the First World War, this book corrects widespread misperceptions of the Russian Army and the war in the east even as it deepens and extends our understanding of the broader conflict.
Of the four empires at war by the end of 1914—the Austro-Hungarian, Ottoman, German, and Russian—none survived. But specific political, social, and economic weaknesses shaped the way Russia collapsed and returned as a radically new Soviet regime. It is this context that Stone's work provides, that gives readers a more judicious view of Russia's war on the home front as well as on the front lines. One key and fateful difference in the Russian experience emerges here: its failure to systematically and comprehensively reorganize its society for war, while the three westernmost powers embarked on programs of total mobilization.
