Reflection: Accountability What's With That Crazy Nye Guy? Weathering One More Time! Day 2 - Section 1: Jumping In


I think it is essential that students know exactly what is expected of them when they are trying to produce a presentation or writing piece. So, I always give my students a rubric that is student friendly ahead of time. This way, those who are overwhelmed or uncomfortable with student choice situations can focus and feel some security and have some parameters. They often don't refer to it before they come to me and I need to be better at referring them back to it when they have questions about their work. It's easy for me to get caught up in all the organized chaos of the creative process and forget that I need to push that accountability back on them using that tool!
