Reflection: Standardized Tests (PARCC/Smarter Balanced) Day 4 - Comparitive Analysis of "Ain't I a Woman?" and "Still I Rise" - Section 2: Independent Practice


Our district has been working to prepare for whatever standardized test the  state will adopt in the near future to replace our old one. In the meantime, we have been working with many of the PARCC resources, which have really helped to prepare our students as we continue making the shifts in rigor and expectations. 

My students and I have reviewed this rubric on a few occasions, have used it for peer review, and I have used it for evaluation as well. They are familiar with it and are well prepared.
