Lesson Evaluation

Evaluation of this project is interactive and should be designed to suit the learners', not the teacher's pace. Teams are assessed when they are ready. Evaluations may take as long as necessary.

Products that may be assessed are up to individual teachers' discretion. When we assign value to student work, we produce an impact: what gets measured, gets noticed; what gets inspected gets respected. For this reason individual teachers are encouraged to devise their own assessment criteria using any or all activities included within this project.
