Implementation
1. Look down
Table Talk
• What do you notice about skills and
criteria?
• How might these fit all content areas?
2. Look across: one skill criterion
http://tinyurl.com/k9cgu3c
• What do you notice about growth within and across
grade spans?
• How might these rubrics support a call to rigor in
content-area learning?
Apply It: Choose a skill criterion. Read the student
response. What subskill feedback would you give this student?
How can the quality continuum be used to support qualitative
student growth, rather than quantitative grades?
We Need Some Bright Ideas!
What ideas do you have
for implementation
in a high-school culture
and climate?
