Students in grade 1/2 assess their work by colouring in the bullseye where they think they are on the rubric.
"In my video I don't think I'm at the bullseye yet. I spoke kinda loud but I also spoke a little fast. I made eye contact but I wasn't so confident, I was a little nervous. My body is still most of the time but since I was a little scared I did kinda move around. I didn't clearly explain my information but I did have some details to tell what my video was about. I have three big ideas that I talk about and explain how each government works (The Ancient Athens, The Iroquois Confederacy and Canadian Democracy). I understood my information without looking at my notes but I did use words like "umm" and "like". I need to work on staying still and making more eye contact. I also need to work on using more curriculum vocabulary words and knowing my information better." - Prinaaz, grade 6
"I would give you a B (basic) because you have basic information. You went back to the book to look for information and your work is mostly organized. For the first question you just wrote her hair, but you could have said what colour her hair is and how long it is. I would give you a D (detailed) if you added more details and fixed your spelling and punctuation." - Reeana, grade 5
"I liked having a debate because I learned how other people feel about funding the Canadian Space Agency and what topics they were interested in. I got to explain my opinion and learn about new research in space. I changed my position because the arguments I heard really convinced me. I could explain my opinion using facts really well. I needed to improve on talking louder." - Austin, grade 5
