Assessment

Assessment and Self Reflection:
A useful ongoing and informal assessment might include recording on regular basis anecdotal information on how the students are participating in their work groups and inspecting their individual learning journal entries. For a more formal assessment of the final map product, a Rubric such as this one, would provide information as to specifically what features the students have mastered and indicates where they need improvement.

It is always best to develop the rubric with the students as you discuss with them what criteria should be included. This way your students fully understand what is to be achieved. Students can contribute to ongoing assessment by self reflection and by assessing the work created by their peers.

Advanced:
Teaching students how to create scale drawings using proportion and measurement skills would be a perfect fit with this lesson. Math concepts and skills would be applied for this visual representation. This is a scale drawing lesson created with NCTM standards by Creative Publications and available to all teachers.
