  • Creating and planning regular activities for learning and assessment
  • Creating and adapting critical challenges for student engagements
  • Using inquiry process that leads to feedback and reflection through out the process to lead to continuous growth.
  • Multi-step assignments that allow for students to modify and build upon their knowledge and understanding
  • Assignments designed to be as challenging or as simplified as students want/need
  • Formative, hands on assignments designed to lead to summative projects
  • Feedback and reflections given with area of strength, area of growth and strategies for improvement – personalized to each student’s instructional levels.
