Reflection: ELL Students Unit Assessment: Communicating Science Research Results! - Section 2: Project Overview


           It is conventional wisdom in this day and age to employ instructional practices in the classroom that are as diverse as our students are. This too should be said for the modalities of student assessments. It is pretty typical and far more easier for teachers to provide a one size fits all assessment for a group, especially for student research projects, as this helps to hold students accountable for consistency of practices. For this project, I chose to stray from the path most traveled and provided students with options to present their research work.  This included a science research poster, infographic or science research paper. All of these products are universally accepted for scientific presentation and/or publications and provide students with options to express their work in a manner that is most comfortable for them. In doing so, I was able to secure more products from confident individuals as opposed to less from students who felt forced into an uncomfortable option. Overall, I was impressed with their levels of engagement in the project and the pride in their selected products.
