The posters can be used as an assessment for learning (as a diagnostic activity to see what knowledge your students are bringing to a concept), assessment as learning (as a formative assessment during a unit or as a review before the end of a unit), or as assessment of learning (as a summative task at the end of a unit).
Teachers could have all students complete the same poster, or have students create different posters to create a concept wall full of visually appealing posters.
These posters make a GREAT sub day activity, needling little to no prep for you or the sub. They would also make a great addition to your writing or reading journals or notebooks.
Posters are in black and white and are easy to reproduce. Students are expected to add visual appeal to the posters by adding color and creativity. Posters are created in 8.5 x 11 size, but can be enlarged on the photocopier to print at 11 x 17 size.
Each set contains a rubric for summative or formative assessment. Most sets also include a blank poster for forming your own questions, a full-color completed example, and student success criteria checklist for students to use prior to handing in.
Completed posters will make a fabulous bulletin board
display that both students and teachers will be proud of!
