Product Description
Bundle of 8 editions of Optimal Performance Real World Performance Task for 8th grade

In the Optimal Performance Performance Task, students use real information about their favorite sports car to practice informative reading and writing in an engaging, real world context. Students take on the role of a mechanical engineer and inform their sponsor which car they plan to race in an upcoming drag race competition.

They compare different types of race tracks then compare the horsepower and acceleration of different race cars and research to find out more. They then produce a video about their chosen car for their YouTube fans, before writing a formal profile of the car for their sponsor. The task ends with the opportunity to develop informative writing in several ways.

Editions:
Eight different editions or versions of this Performance Task are included so students can work with the edition they are most interested in, or an appropriate edition can be chosen for the class. Some of the editions included are Bugatti, Lamborghini, and Porsche (see complete list below), which all require students to work with different information and complete extended responses linked to their selected edition.

This Performance Task could be completed for one level (explained below) in one lesson only or could be extended to make a short writing unit across a week.


What’s included in this Performance Task:

* Level 1 Activity – Laying the foundation through reading. Students start by annotating and analyzing a text that carefully models the text type and answering standards aligned reading questions.

* Level 2 Activity – Starting to write. Students use what they have learned so far to complete a short piece of writing or research or plan for their extended writing piece.

* Challenge Activity – Bring on the collaboration! Fun and engaging speaking and listening activities through authentic simulations lead students toward their final piece of extended writing.

* Finale Activities – Finish up. Each Performance Task ends with five options for extended writing of the same text type within the real-world context. Finale options reach Webb's Depth of Knowledge levels 3-4.

* Answer Key & Rubrics – All Performance Tasks come with an answer key and rubrics, including grading guidance for teachers.

* Job Background – Each Performance Task enables students to picture themselves in a real world career. Information about the career is given, including entry-level education, median pay, and job outlook.

* Glossary - Where new domain-specific vocabulary is used, a student-friendly glossary is included.

This set comes with both teacher and student print-outs. Teacher print-outs include a teacher guide, answer key and rubrics.
