In this class, free choice time provides students with opportunities to work on group projects and develop teamwork skills. One day, a group of students decided to collaboratively create a hockey rink by placing small whiteboards together and drawing on them. The students listened carefully and respectfully to each other and required no teacher support to produce their “giant” hockey rink.
In familiar situations, I cooperate with others for specific purposes.
I contribute during group activities, cooperate with others, and listen respectfully to their ideas. I can work with others for a specific purpose.
I can gather and combine new evidence with what I already know to develop reasoned conclusions, judgments, or plans.
I can use what I know and observe to identify problems and ask questions. I explore and engage with materials and sources. I can develop or adapt criteria, check information, assess my thinking, and develop reasoned conclusions, judgments, or plans. I consider more than one way to proceed and make choices based on my reasoning and what I am trying to do. I can assess my own efforts and experiences and identify new goals. I give, receive, and act on constructive feedback.
