Evaluation

Describe to the learners how their performance will be evaluated. Decide whether students will be graded individually, in groups, or a combination of both. Evaluation for this project must include grades for thorough researching, for presentation and/or paper, for citations, and especially for persuasive techniques (addressing the audience, acknowledging and refuting the opposition).

Remember to grade according to the standards applied. Reading: Generate relevant questions about readings on issues that can be researched. Extend ideas presented in primary or secondary sources through original analysis, evaluation, and elaboration. Writing: Structure ideas and arguments in a sustained, persuasive, and sophisticated way and support them with precise and relevant examples. Presentations: Use organization, graphics, and verbal strategies appropriate to persuade the audience.
