Interdisciplinary Units 3:00 - 3:55 p.m.

  1. Review the ID exemplar examples from the Land Ethics Resources, Buck Institute and ID Unit Examples with your subject group with a focus on the types of summative assessments beyond a test.
  2. Since the ID unit topic is Land Ethics generate summative assessment ideas are assessing your discipline and a summative assessment that would explain the unit as a whole. For example, you might give students the choice to create a presentation, build a portfolio, write a play, create poetry, etc.
  3. As a collaborative group we need to complete the sections within the HS ID Sketch.
