If you have not done so, complete before the end of the period. Begin after the problem presentation. Here is the link:


Problem presentation:


Collaborative Design of Assessment:

Select 2 representatives from your class to work on the design of the assessment based on the problem that is presented. This will happen in all 3 Science 8 Frazier sections. 1 assessment project will emerge. The task is to decide:

  • what to do
  • what to “count”
  • how to “count” (in view of standards and expectations of what 8th graders can and should know and be able to do)
