10 Performance-Based Projects for the Math Classroom Grades 3-5
Each book in the 10 Performance-Based Projects series provides 10 ready-made projects designed to help students achieve higher levels of thinking and develop 21st-century skills. Projects are aligned to the Common Core State Standards, allowing students to explore and be creative as well as gain enduring understanding. Each project represents a type of performance assessment, including portfolios, oral presentations, research papers, and exhibitions. Included for each project is a suggested calendar to allow teacher scheduling, mini-lessons that allow students to build capacity and gain understanding, as well as multiple rubrics to objectively assess student performance. The lessons are presented in an easy-to-follow format, enabling teachers to implement projects immediately.
This teacher's math workbook is part of the 10 Performance-Based Projects series which provides good opportunities for advanced learners to integrate their math learning with other 21st century skills, including flexible thinking, collaboration and presentation . . . For teachers interested in adding some additional hands-on activities to their math curriculum, this workbook can be useful resource to use with some classes of students. Mindprint Learning, 10/17/16
The projects, although providing excellent ideas and strategies, are best suited to be add-ons to current content; however, the peer reviews and student reflections can be beneficial tools in the classroom at any time. I believe this book could be useful for teachers wanting to add depth to their mathematics curricula. ,Shelli Casler-Failing,Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School,4/1/17
