Teaching and Assessment

Guiding rubrics should be given to the students at the start of a task and discussed within groups.

teaching math quest
Teaching: Math Quest

As student groups purchase supplies, they gain experience in planning, record keeping and basic math.

Students immediately take ownership of their learning experience!

Teaching: Math Quest

Fate cards drawn each day add chance and excitement.

Unpredictability is just like life, adding authenticity.

Teams may gain, lose, stay the same or have humor added to their quest.

assessment rubrics
Assessment: Rubrics

Rubrics take the guess work out of authentic assessment for teachers and students.
