Unpacking standards: Differentiating through student product

Week Ten Essential Question:  How can I differentiate through student product in my classroom?

This week I attempted to create a rubric that could be used to assess student learning through project-based use of simulation games such as Minecraft.

First, the Alaska Standards I chose to unpack in my rubric:

Standard for Mathematical Practice 4.  Model with mathematics:

In grades 9-12 mathematically proficient students will:

  • apply mathematics to solve problems in everyday life, society, and workplace
  • identify important quantities in a practical situation and map the relationships using such tools as diagrams, two-way tables, graphs, flowcharts and formulas
  • consistently interpret mathematical results in the context of the situation and reflect on whether the results make sense
  • apply knowledge, making assumptions and approximations to simplify a complicated situation, realizing that the final solution will need to be revised 
  • analyze quantitative relationships to draw conclusions
  • improve the model if it has not served its purpose

Writing Standards for Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science and Technical Subjects grades 6-12:  Production and Distribution of Writing

6.  Use technology, including the internet, to produce, publish, and update individual or shared writing products, taking advantage of technology’s capacity to link to other information and to display information flexibly and dynamically

Here’s a link to my rubric:
