The vice-principal of Summerland Secondary School has written a book to help educators with grading.

The book, Grading Smarter, Not Harder, comes from Myron Dueck’s experience with school administrators and teachers during his teaching career.

He said the book includes plenty of personal stories from incidents which have changed the way he grades his students.

While it is intended for educators, Dueck said the book also has valuable information for parents.

The book was published by ASCD, an educational publishing company. It has gone to close to 100,000 educators.

Dueck will be a participant in the Friends of the Summerland Library event, 10-10-10, on Saturday, Sept. 27. The event, from 2 to 4:30 p.m. features 10 local authors presenting their books.
