Last Wednesday I visited Anne Gardner's 8th grade class at Black River. Anne was facilitating a text protocol with her students to help them deconstruct an assessment they had just completed. The students analyzed how Anne wrote the prompt, and then compared it to a piece of student work to see how students in the past interpreted the same prompt. Anne then tasked the 8th graders with rewriting the prompt they had just analyzed in a way that would make sense to them. This analysis was to set the stage for students to design their own assessments.
