4 Great Rubrics to Develop Students Presentations and Speaking Skills

4 Great Rubrics to Develop Students Presentations and Speaking Skills
February 20, 2014 Looking for some rubrics to hone in your students presentation skills ? The rubrics below will definitely be of great help. I came across these materials on Discovery Assessment in an article written by Dona Criswell and I really liked them specially that they cover different grades. However, it should be noted that these rubrics are the property of Bucket Institute of Education, a leading source on project based learning materials and for some reasons the download link Donna provided is not working so I am hoping you will be able to have rough idea of how to create your own rubric based on these samples here. 1- Presentation rubric for grades k-2 click here to see a larger version. 2- Presentation rubric for grades 3-5, click here to see a larger version. 3- Presentation rubric for grades 6-8, click here to see a larger version. 4- Presentation rubric for grades 9-12.

14 Questions To Guide Your Curriculum Mapping And Lesson Design by Grant Wiggins How teachers plan – I think this is one of the more interesting ‘black boxes’ in education. There are few studies of it, yet it is clearly one of the most vital elements of the enterprise. Winging it is sometimes fun, but it’s a bad way to run a family, a business, or a classroom. Great Back to School Ed Tech Rubrics August 18, 2014 I love rubrics and I find them particularly helpful in lesson plan designing as well as in assessing students work. I know some teachers and educators think of them as "so yesterday" but we need to view them as roadmaps that can guide you towards achieving your teaching/learning goals. Over the last couple of years, I have shared here a wide myriad of rubrics most of them are Ed Tech related.

6 Online Rubric Makers Worth Trying Grading assignments can be one of the most tedious parts of teaching, but there are ways you can make it easier. Rubrics improve your efficiency and fairness by providing clear learning goals. They help you recognize exactly what you’re looking for as you read through that science report or history essay.

A Really, Really Cool Website For Students Who Think They Hate Math The best resource for a student that thinks they hate math is a great teacher. But what about the best resource for that teacher? Beyond an active imagination, ability to relate to students, and an incredibly strong content knowledge themselves, it may not get much better than Numberphile . While the site is simple a crudely interactive graphic with links to videos, it has, in one fell swoop, creatively curated some of the most compelling and engaging “problems” in mathematics. From Benford’s Law to French Numbers, to whether or not zero is an even number, it frames the content area of math–which is often riddled with rote practice of very traditional arithmetic and formulas–in a problem-based learning kind of approach. Fantastic resource for bell ringers, test questions, math project-based learning ideas, or as a model for students to curate their own curiosities about the incredible–and poorly marketed–world of mathematics.

Sure, I could respond, sharing anecdotes about what I believed to be engaging, but I thought it would be so much better to lob that question to my own eighth graders. The responses I received from all 220 of them seemed to fall under 10 categories, representing reoccuring themes that appeared again and again. So, from the mouths of babes, here are my students' answers to the question: "What engages students?" 1.
