  • This diagram was made with Mindnode.
  • This is SusanWaldenberger’s rubric. In making the assignment, this may also be an opportune time to talk about search skills and evaluation of sources and tools.After reading a piece by Dave Cormier, I realized that my rubric had not included a way for students to answer the question, “What learning was supported by the PLE?” Susan’s rubric includes a summary and I think that summary could serve that purpose.
  • You’ve been provided with a worksheet at your table. Give people 10 – 15 minutes to create and share. You don’t need to use these categories necessarily.
