"Research indicates that the quality of classroom assignments makes a difference in student learning. Moreover, assignment quality varies between teachers, even within the same school. To support teachers in developing, reflecting on, and fine-tuning assignments, Creating High Quality Classroom Assignments presents a series of rubrics with benchmark examples from elementary, middle, and high school classrooms. These rubrics serve as diagnostic tools to assess the strengths and weaknesses of assignments and guide the creation of new ones. Questions are also provided at the end of each chapter to direct reflection on a specific dimension of assignment quality." "This book will be useful to teachers for self-assessment purposes, collaborative professional development settings, or as a basic text in teachers education courses." -Book Jacket
