“Excellence is to do a common thing in an uncommon way.”- Booker T. Washington

Professional Learning-Success Critieria

  1. Self Assessment
  2. Gallery Walk:

  • How does the criteria address ‘what counts’ in the curriculum?

  • What evidence is there of student contribution in the success criteria? What might student contribution look like in success criteria?

  • How might this criteria allow students to demonstrate thoughtful, reasoned responses to thoughtful questions and tasks?
  • Does the success criteria allow students to distinguish between assignment requirements (format, procedure) and criteria (important markers for quality performance tied to curriculum)?

3. Now back at your table turn to the person next and please share your observations.
