Have you tried using "Learning Models" in your instruction? They are a great way for students to have voice and choice in how they demonstrate proficiency! We use "Learning Models" in our personalized learning environment of 53 5th graders.
This learning model ties with our Fantasy Reader's Workshop Unit of Study! Students are given the standards that we covered during the unit, then are allowed to choose how they prove their proficiency. We utilize these as an example of summative assessment.
In this document, you will receive directions, examples, and a 4-point rubric.
You can learn more about how we use learning models on our blog.
As always, if you have questions or want your own digital copy to edit after purchase, please do not hesitate to contact us! We're excited to grow and learn with you!
Happy Teaching! ~Kate & Angela
