Reflection: Diverse Entry Points Exploring Nuclear Energy - Section 5: Evaluate


The most common error I see in summary writing is the lack of statistical data tied to a source. Students want to write what they know but Common Core standards ask science teachers to train students to think with evidence in their writing. When a student does not comply with my instructions,  I catch their mistake in my formative assessment. I allow them to change answers to get a better grade.
