Teacher Notes (not visible to students)

Encourage your students to teach their family key concepts you expect them to have mastered. This activity can be customized and used repeatedly as a way to discover mastery so you know who needs more help and who is ready to move on to the next focus area. Save the activity to your library and modify the rubric and the lesson to meet your specific needs. You can also give more specific directions on what they need to include in the lesson so they are showing key concepts, the process they are using and are able to show their thinking.
