Reflection: Exit Tickets Lesson 7: Beavers, Nature's Teamwork Engineers - Section 5: Class Discussion/Wrap Up


I find that when students are working collaboratively they need to know that they are responsible not only for the work produced, but for being a part of the group dynamic. I include group participation as a part of the rubric. In the Beaver 3-2-1 Rubric, the section on group dynamic has the key participation words in bold, there is no question on my part, or theirs, whether they are meeting the goal of the rubric. This type of rubric is also very easy to use in that the areas being assessed, content and group dynamic, are are evident.

  Exit Tickets: Using a rubric for work completed collaboratively is an easy and quick way to assess.
