Teamwork Evaluation Rubric

At the end of any collaborative activity, each student makes a copy of this Teamwork Evaluation Rubric and fills out the boxes with his/her thoughts on the overall quality of their group's teamwork. The rubric includes multiple indicators of high-quality teamwork and encoruages discussion about how to improve future iterations. Indicators include noise level (framed as concern for other group's ability to work effectively), quality of work produced, overall teamwork, and level of grit. Students assess their own contributions to their collaborative assignment as well as their teammates' contributions. Students can insert glows and grows where they explicitly discuss their feelings regarding their own work and the work of their peers. I frame this activity as a team-building exercise. Evaluating collaborative assignments can be complicated. The Teamwork Evaluation Rubric allows me to collect a good deal of data about individual student's contributions from multiple perspectives, which is both a fair and thorough way to assess individuals and the team as a whole.

Student Handout
 
 
By sharing this Teamwork Evaluation Google Sheets Rubric with my students, I open up a private communication avenue where my students can share their opinions with me about how they can improve their own contribution as well as that of their teammates in future lab activities. High school students are usually tentative about voicing concerns regarding other students' actions or efforts, but when they realize that this process is meant to help create a better team environment and make sure that all groups work well together, they become invested. Framing this process as a method to improve collaboration is important when establishing the goals of using this resource.

I have a Gritty poster that hangs up in my room to reinforce the grit component of my class. Having a constant visual reminder helps me point out things I want my students to work on that are unrelated to content standards. This "Nitty Gritty" poster was created by one of last year's students and hangs near the lab area of my classroom.

Mastery Checklist

At the beginning of each trimester students are given a checklist to track their own mastery. As they progress through the lessons, they mark off what they have completed, in addition to the grade they received on each lesson. This acts as planner, letting students know at any given moment what they have completed, and what is left for them to learn to finish the trimester.

 
Instructional Planning
Jeff's Approach to Planning

Planning is an essential part of a blended teacher’s practice. In blended environments, where students can be at different points in a course on various modalities, blended teachers need to be very intentional about how they plan. Check out the video below to see how Jeff plans for instruction in his blended classroom.

Weekly Online Goal Setting

Students set weekly goals via Google Forms every Monday and reflect on if they meet these goals at the end of each week. This is a reflective process where students are asked questions that allow them to understand what factors contribute to their success or failure in the class. It also gives me a document I can refer to if I see students are consistently not meeting their own goals.
