A teacher at St. Jean Brebeuf School in Calgary recognizes that when students have a deep understanding of the learning goals, they are better able to achieve them.
- The teacher clarifies the learning goal for herself before planning for instruction and assessment.
- Students use rubrics and exemplars to understand the characteristics of quality work.
- Note how the students respond to the process the teacher has implemented.
- The process used by the teacher required an investment of time for planning, collecting exemplars and working with students. Why might this investment of time be worthwhile?
