Some people love the term paper unit. Some loathe it. I wanted to find other ways to assess student learning besides just the steps in the writing process and the final project. I also wanted something to keep students on-task during in-class work time, so I created this check sheet for behavior during individual and small-group work time, participatin in in-class discussions, and participation in small-group activities.
The spreadsheet itself can be easily modified to add more categories. I did not include a grading scale on the worksheet so that you can add your own.
