Share your reasons with a few neighbors
Together with your neighbors describe a few ways the unit could
be fixed considering each of the headings.
Unit Plan Brainstorm
Grade Level Groups
Goal: Rough Unit Plans
Looking back at the activities we did with the standards brainstorm a
list of 4-8 unit plan ideas
Determine at least one for each grade level
GLCEs do not have to be within the same theme strand
Pick one of the best ideas and do the following as a group:
Create a big idea and essential question(s)
Big Idea: The common good
Essential Questions: Why do we have rules? Do the
consequences effect more than just us?
Determine the GLCEs that will be covered in the unit

K-C1.0.1 Identify and explain the reasons for rules at

home and in school
K-C5.0.1 Describe situations in which they demonstrated
self-discipline and individual responsibility.
Create several critical thinking objectives
TLW create a social contract with the teacher and
themselves and defend why each is important as well as
identifying consequences if they dont follow them.
When presented, TLW identify good and bad choices by
acting out the two sides of a choice, where the students
will demonstrate a good choice or a bad choice, with the
rest of the class saying which type of choice they
TLW will display responsibility by taking care of their
materials in the material in the classroom (Cleaning their
areas, vacuuming the classroom, listening to directions)
Brainstorm possible pieces of evidence
Class rule list. Form of a constitution of the classroom
ofs kindergarten class
Clean classroom, clean desks
Listen during other times
Students are given a paper star when they make a good
choice, versus a sad face when they dont make a good

How is someone who plans for assessments before planning lessons,
different from someone who plans activities first?
One could plan to teach the test versus those who make sure
the students know the material well.
What is formative assessment and how is it best used?
Informal tests given throughout a lesson to help identify the
students next learning steps. Best used when there is less
pressure to answer that doesnt effect grades
Methods Match Targets

Selected response/short answer (Knowledge)
Extended Written response (Reasoning, disposition)
Performance assessment (all, maybe)
Personal Communication (Reasoning)

used at your grade level
Share your ideas at your table
Look back at the cards
If you created a strong performance assessments with specific criteria.
How many of the cards that you put in the selected response pile could
get moved to the performance assessment pile?
Curricular Priorities & Assessment Methods
Royce Sadler, 1989
A key premise is that for students to be able to improve, they must have the
capacity to monitor the quality of their own work during actual production.
This in turn requires that students:
Know what high quality work looks like
Be able to objectively compare their work to the standard
Have a store of tactics to make work better based on their
Tips for Designing Effective Scoring Tools
Included the most important traits in terms of purpose and quality
Common problems:
Scoring the length of the paper instead of quality
Focusing on mechanics, organization, and presentation rather than
content, substance, and effect
Check for consistency of descriptive terms
Holistic Rubric
Analytic Trait Rubric
Break out into categories
First determine what is acceptable (meets expectations) usually #3
then move up and down from there

Avoid the most common problem with rubrics weigh whats important most
Rubric Review
Sample Lesson Rubric
Initial thoughts
Pull apart the GLCEs
5 U3.1.7 Describe how colonial experiences with self-government and
ideas about government influenced the decision to declare independence.
5 U3.1.8 Identify a problem confronting people in the colonies, construct
alternative choices for addressing the problem with possible consequences,
and design the course of action taken.
Determine better categories for the rubric based on the GLCE
Potential Fixes
Historical accuracy
Positions should be the same throughout and supported with evidence
Get rid of the result category
