Reflection: Performance Tasks Temptation in the Garden: Using Archetypes to Create Artisitic Representaitons of Text - Section 4: Creative Creation Time


I think it is very important for students to have multiple kinds of assessments to demonstrate their ability to analyze a text. I'm not always good at finding the perfect balance for this, but I am always mindful that as a teacher, I need to offer assessments that meet different learning styles (i.e. visual, auditory, bodily-kin esthetic, spacial, etc.). After checking in with my teaching partner today, he said that they were silent and hard working during ALL of their allotted time today. Based on the student work (both drawings and written analysis) I've seen, it is clear this was a good use of time.
