Tak Five Week 6-2
Writing:daily journaling, blogging, essay tests, essays
Reading Comprehension:daily work, quizzes, tests
Critical Thinking/Speaking: sticky note questions, fishbowl, participation in class discussion
SAT vocab/Grammar:self explanatory
Work habits/Responsibility: daily assignments that don't fit into other catergories (non-academic assignments possibly)
My thinking has changed on these categories and I am sure they will again as time progresses. I know I want to change from the catergories I had previously (they reflected only the units I taught and how kids performed on each individual unit) rather than a refelction of their learning over time. Like Amanda said, it should show a contiuum of their learning.
The only questions I have are: should critical thinking be broken down into two parts of speaking and critical thinking? Do I weight these all equally seeing as how they are all important parts of the curriculum? I am also wondering about projects that I do that don't fit into these categories. Where do they go?
