Reflection: Checks for Understanding What's Up with the Water Cycle? - Section 1: NGSS Connections and Class Preparation


I chose to create a rubric for the student's poster so that I could systematically review how well individuals did with the task as well as the class as a whole. I wanted to see how I could address the science standards within a rubric format.

The rubric addressed 2 science standards. The rubric descriptors for the definitions and labels addressed, 'Science Practice 8' - Obtaining, Evaluating and Communicating Information. The rubric also addresses 'Science Practice 2 - Developing and Using Models. This is noted on the last line as 'Diagram'.
