"Every accomplishment starts with the decision to try!" - Gail Devers
There are so many great resources out there for assessing students. I was interested in creating a fun way for students to keep a running log for self assessment and reflection throughout the week. I wanted to create a project the students would not only enjoy working on, but that they would proudly "deliver" to their parents at the end of the week.
What better way to keep track than a newsletter. The Daily was born! Combining 16 different types of proven assessments, the Daily has a visually appealing format that engages students by accessing their creativity. You'll notice these assessments you are already familiar with have a slight twist. They are now fun to do.
The motto of the paper is the quote by Gail Devers. Students are empowered when they take their learning into their own hands with that first decision...to try!
