Reflection: Student Ownership Poetry: Consonance - Section 2: Create Your Own


     As students work in pairs, I notice that they were guided by the expectations listed on the Partnership checklist.  This Partner Self-Assessment technique somehow made students accountable of their own actions, since they used is to self-assess their performance as effective partners.  As a result, students gave positive reviews for both theirs and their partners' performances.  The checklist functioned effectively as guidelines in their partner relationships.
