Reflection: Performance Tasks It's All "Write", a Macromolecule Word Splash - Section 4: Independent Practice


I continue to be amazed at the quality of work that students create when given an opportunity to express themselves creatively.  This activity allows students to show me what they know and how they view the associations of the content in their own unique ways.  We always need to assess students.  But, the ways in which we structure the assessments should be as varied and textured with differences as the students are.  Many of my students will lag behind their counterparts in terms of scoring of a traditional assessment so this type of activity allows those students to experience success with another assessment method.
