Driving question: "How can teachers support deeper learning by making opportunities to collaborate on performance-based assessments more meaningful for students?"
Overall learning goal: For candidates to identify ways to support students in becoming effective collaborators as they work together on performance-based assessments to solve problems and deepen their content understanding
Section 1 - Opportunities for Collaboration During Performance-Based Assessments
- Candidates explore how performance-based assessments (PBAs) can integrate meaningful opportunities for collaboration through sample PBA plans & classroom videos.
- Candidates engage in a team activity to determine what effective collaboration looks like.
Section 2 - Strategies for Supporting Students in Becoming More Effective Collaborators
- Candidates identify ways teachers can support students in working together to demonstrate and deepen their content understanding, and draw from strategies/resources from the field to build a Collaboration Support Toolkit.
Section 3 - Planning to Deepen Learning by Supporting Collaboration on Performance-Based Assessments (CORE ACTIVITY)
- Candidates use their Toolkit to create and share an implementation plan for strategically supporting collaboration on a PBA within their content area.
