Action: Semester Examinations

  • As we plan for the knitting together of our major concepts into semester examinations~ it is time to consider ways to have students present to us what they have learned in this semester.
  • What did my students learn can be summarized via a series of questions:
  • 1. Can they argue a point?
  • 2. Can they identify~ explore or show me a new way of thinking about an idea?
  • 3. Can they justify~ illustrate~ or locate main points in our work together?
  • 4. Can they critique~ rate or merge competing ideas?
  • 5. Can they design~ compose~ or test a hypothesis?
  • As we write our examinations~ let's eagerly extend learning and have students show us what they know!
