Reflection: High Expectations Summative Assessment for Of Mice and Men: Academic Choice - Section 4: Wrap Up


About three quarters of my students chose to write a "letter to George" and received an average score of 3 on the grading rubric. Those who enjoy drawing and are spatially talented chose to design a poster.  What I found (not surprisingly) was that all my students, with the exception of one, completed the assessment.  The one that did not seemed to loose her stamina and decided to take a lower score rather than complete her test.

I'd like to hear from you with any questions or comments you may have about working with reluctant learners who struggle in ELA and how you are doing your best to reach and teach all of them!
