Consistently and clearly identifies a meaningful content focus: references the GLCE and Content Standards; applies correct sequence for MI schools; links GLCE, lesson objectives, and assessment are performance based and measurable

Applies teaching standards within each lesson that focus on:

    a. Higher order thinking;

b.  Deep Knowledge

c.   Content that is issues, inquiry, and problem based;

d.  Connections to the world outside of school

Includes best practices in several different contexts within each lesson. Demonstrates that each best practice is directly linked to content engagement by the students through the task assigned.

Follows the format presented in the Spatial Thinking and Problem Solving;

Includes 5 fully developed lessons for five class sessions.  A full developed lesson is modeled by the spatial lesson above

Follows the MEAP Assessment design and incorporates assessment strategies from the NAEP and MEAP websites.

2

Clearly identifies a meaningful content focus by cross referencing to GLCE. Has grade and GLCE aligned correctly so that GLCE designated content is presented in the aligned grade. Lessons objectives are clearly stated and can be linked to assessment.

Regularly applies two of the teaching standards within each lesson. Teaching standards are:

a. Higher order thinking;

b. Deep Knowledge.

c. Content that is issues, inquiry, and problem based;

d. Connections to the world outside of school

Includes best practices within each lesson. Links each best practice to content.

The format of the lessons and the format of Spatial Thinking and Problem Solving have a resemblance. Includes 4 fully developed lessons, and 1 partially developed lesson.

 

 

Follows the MEAP Assessment design and applies two assessment strategies

1

Has grade and GLCE aligned correctly so that GLCE designated content is presented in the aligned grade. Lessons objectives are stated and can be linked to assessment.

Regularly applies one of the teaching standards within each lesson. Teaching standards are:

a. Higher order thinking;

b. Deep Knowledge

c. Content that is issues, inquiry, and problem based;

d. Connections to the world outside of school

Attaches best practices to lesson but does not demonstrate that the students are engaged in the best practices.

The format of the lessons and the format of Spatial Thinking and Problem Solving are vaguely familiar. Includes 3 fully developed lessons and 2 partially developed lessons.

Follows the MEAP Assessment design and with one assessment strategy ,

0

Lesson objectives are clearly stated and can be linked to assessment.

Teaching standards are not recognizable within each lesson. Teaching standards are absent:

a.Higher order thinking;

b. Deep Knowledge

c. Content that is issues, inquiry, and problem based;

d. Connections to the world outside of school

Seldom applies best practices.

The format of the lessons and the format of Spatial Thinking and Problem Solving no resemblance; includes 2 lessons and 3 partially developed lessons.

Uses another strategy rather than  the MEAP Assessment design
