A.        Overall Group Presentation

35%

Our group was well prepared. Each member contributed equally in the preparation and had collected information from a variety of appropriate sources that were solid and relevant to the presentation of our topic.  The lesson we designed was creative and clearly built on our understanding of learning theory and research as it relates to effective instructional practice.  We paced ourselves appropriately during the presentation and balanced time among and flow between our team members effectively.  The presentation and activities followed a clear and logical sequence and support materials were effectively and appropriately used.  Our lesson presentation strategy was engaging and encouraged the active involvement of class members.

Our group was fairly well prepared.  We had all collected and critiqued reference lessons (although we feel there could have been more or better quality lessons found and used).  The lesson we designed was based on theories and research. We paced ourselves appropriately during the presentation and balanced time among and flow between our team members effectively.  The presentation and activities was sequential and support materials were appropriately used.  Our lesson presentation strategy actively involved class members.

Our presentation was uneven and demonstrated that a few members had done most of the work. Although we shared information, most of it was collected by one or two of us and did not truly represent a group effort. The sources of information we did use were simply lesson plans that we collected.  Our presentation consisted primarily of reading from notes and did little to engage participants in any meaningful way.

We did not prepare for this presentation as well as we should have. We did little to critique the lessons we gathered…All of our information was available from the assigned readings in the text and little, if any, outside reading was done in preparation.  We did not have an engaging activity at all and basically read contributions in turn.

B.        Critique and Discussion

20%

Our group was fully prepared for the questions asked during/after our presentation. We had in-depth knowledge of the lessons we reviewed and were able to clearly articulate their strengths and weaknesses as well as the rationale for the design of our team lesson based on this critique.  Through facilitation of the discussion we were able to demonstrate our extensive research base when answering specific questions. The answers to the questions asked provided a means to further illuminate the critique and helped the rest of the class to clearly understand the strengths and theoretical and research basis of the lesson we presented.

Our group was able to answer some, but not all, of the questions completely.  In our answers we displayed our knowledge of the lessons we reviewed and were able to share information on their strengths and weaknesses and describe how we designed our team lesson based on this critique.  Through facilitation of the discussion we were able to demonstrate our research base when answering specific questions. The answers to the questions asked provided a means to further illuminate the critique and helped the rest of the class to understand the strengths and theoretical and research basis of the lesson we presented.

The information we had collected, while sufficient to design and present our lesson, was insufficient to handle the questions asked by our peers.  We were not sufficiently familiar with the lessons to describe their strengths and weaknesses and were not able to clearly identify how we designed our lessons based on this critique.  Many of our answers consisted of re-stating the points we had made earlier.

C.        Individual Self-Assessment  (personal performance)     

10%

I feel my preparation was comprehensive and added greatly to our effort. My information matched the other information in the group well and was not redundant since we had coordinated our research efforts ahead of time.  My contribution fit with the level of the rest of the group, which overall was very high.

My section of the presentation went well but was not coordinated as well as it could have been with the rest of the members of my group. While some of the information I shared was appropriate, I feel that some of the information I had brought to the presentation may not have been relevant. Overall, my contribution made sense and supported our team goal.

My contribution to the group effort appeared weak. I had some contributions to make to either the lesson critique or the sample lesson presentation, but it did not seem to be at the level of other members or the standard I have seen in the presentation by other groups. I relied mostly on the other group members to carry the presentation and read my contribution from notes.

D.        Supporting Documentation (written products)

35%

Our team submission and support materials were complete and comprehensive and accurately matched our actual presentation and roles.  The lesson plan was both clear and creative and demonstrated a deep and detailed understanding of how to address and apply specific theories and research in instructional practice.  The lesson critique identified both strengths and weaknesses of each lesson reviewed and clearly linked the critique to developmental theories through excellently formatted citations well referenced and included references that reflected a variety of appropriate sources of high academic quality, directly related to the topic.  Support materials used during the lesson were creative, appropriate and represented a thoughtful and significant effort, contributing to the lesson and engagement of the participants.  Each member contributed equally in the preparation of the document.

Our team lesson plan, critique and support materials were complete and clear and generally reflected our presentation and designated roles.  The referenced critique identified strengths and weaknesses of the lessons reviewed.  Reference to theories and resources were made using good quality formatting of citations and references.  Support materials used during the lesson were appropriate and contributed to the lesson and engagement of the participants.  Each member contributed equally in preparation of the document.

Our presentation lesson plan was somewhat unclear and did not include all components or did not reflect our presentation or roles. The referenced critique of lessons. References were of poor or questionable quality and/or were not relevant to the presentation or topic. Some members contributed substantially more to the document and its preparation than others and there was only minimal effort made to produce a coordinated, coherent document.

Our presentation lesson plan was unclear and did not reflect our presentation. The written materials demonstrated our lack of coordination as a team.  References were of poor or questionable quality with and were not relevant to the presentation or topic.  One person did all of the work on the supporting documentation, which was not coherent.
