Decomposers Activity 3.3 Assessment


During the class discussion, listen for students making connections to the investigation and their arguments. Are they drawing on observations from the investigation, or from other sources of knowledge and experience? Use the 3.3 Grading the Evidence-Based Arguments Tool for Bread Molding to assess your students’ thinking at this point in the unit. At this point they have concluded their “up the triangle” inquiry journey, and are headed “down the triangle” for the application sequence.


Have the students store their 3.3 Evidence-Based Arguments Tool for Bread Molding in the same place as their Expressing Ideas and Predictions Tools so they can be easily revisited.
