Does the
material routinely include suggestions for having
each student express, clarify, justify, and represent
his or her ideas? Are suggestions made for when and
how students will get feedback from peers and the
teacher?
Indicators
of meeting the criterion
- Material routinely encourages
students to express their ideas.
- Material
encourages students not only to express but also
to clarify, justify, and represent their
ideas (a material is not expected to encourage
students to clarify, justify, and represent
ideas each time they are asked to express
their ideas; however, in the course of teaching
a particular key idea the material should provide
students with opportunities to clarify, justify, and represent
ideas).
- Material
provides opportunities for each student
(rather than just some students) to express ideas.
- Material
includes specific suggestions on how to help the
teacher provide explicit feedback to students
or includes text that directly provides students
with feedback.
- Material
includes suggestions on how to diagnose
student errors, explanations about how these errors
may be corrected, and recommendations for how students'
ideas may be further developed.
Rating Scheme
