Reflection: Flexibility Letters from Authors - Section 4: Partner Work


I thought it was interesting how the student in the proficient but different(Proficient Student WorkProficient But Different Rubric) work used his graphic organizer.  I wish I had modeled how to use the rubric in the beginning of the lesson.  I like the way he used it to evaluate his work and then his peer evaluated it.  This is really how I wanted it to be used, but the rest of the class just had their partner evaluate their work.  I think  if I had specifically modeled how to use the rubric like the proficient student the rest of the class would have done it correctly. I just explained it orally and first graders need more than an oral explanation to complete something this complex.

I also included the Below Basic Work , Basic Peer Rubric as examples of what some students did. In addition, I have a model of differentiation in another piece of work showing Differentiation.
