There are individual posters for each element, as well as one that incorporates all the elements for reading comprehension, and another that combines all the elements for a planning activity in writing or assessment at the end of a unit. They 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, needing 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.
A rubric is also included for summative or formative assessment. I have also made a student self-reflection checklist for students to use prior to handing in their posters.
I have also included a poster without a concept title in case you want to add a concept that is not covered in this resource.
Completed posters will make a fabulous bulletin board display
that both students and teachers will be proud of!
