Module 4. Assessing PBL

THE ROOT OF THE WORD “ASSESSMENT”

IS FROM THE LATIN “ASSIDERE”

WHICH MEANS “TO SIT BESIDE'”

Assessment should not only be about giving a grade at the end but it should be an on-going process, where teachers and students alike assess their learning as they work on the projects.  I think it must be written in bold letters in to teachers training methodologies books.

What is the biggest benefit for me I’ve got in  these courses ?  It’s not a badges. It’s an additional energy charge  to my attitude as a teacher about using  modern teaching methods.

 “If children can’t learn the way we teach, maybe we should teach the way they learn.” ― Ignacio Estrada   the best sentence I have found on Valentina Petrova blog .As a speech therapist I feel free to assess kids a  way I think is  most suitable in situation. Usually I use formative assessment.

summative vs formative assessment

After I finish my studies I didn’t know another methods to teach kids new words, just making huge pictures albums and during lesson list all them. But with age I have understand, that different activities, work in pairs, collaboration,  lets learn much easier, and  helps  to remember. Also I have thought, that without assessment by marks is very difficult to motivate kids.
