This document shows ideas for format and assessment of individual presentations.

This other document shows a rubric template you adapt by inserting four criteria and brief descriptions that suit your particular format.  Before starting your presentation, hand a printed copy of the adapted rubric to two classmates and me.  We will complete it and return to you.  Be sure that the brief descriptions help your classmates and me know specifically what success looks like for a given criterion.  Guide us with specific language, rather than make us guess.

I especially like last year’s seniors’ phrasing.  It captures the spirit of these presentations.  They call each event a “demonstration of understanding.”

These thoughts from last year give us a solid foundation on which to build our projects.  You should feel free to adapt or invent, keeping in mind four basic criteria classmates and I could use to assess your performance.
