SWBAT show their knowledge of the events of September 11, firsthand and secondhand accounts, opinion writing and primary and secondary sources.

The ability to transfer over a skill to a new situation is an important one for all students.

Assessment Day

60 minutes

Today will be the day that the students get to show what they know.  In this assessment, as in my others, there will be a mixture of items.  We are still trying to get QAR under our belt so I will mix some of that in while assessing the reading of a primary source.

I would love to have an assessment that involves the computer in some way, but not enough of my students are proficient enough with the computer that it wouldn't be hindering their achievement on what I'm actually trying to assess.
