Overview

Practical tools for translating standards to rubrics and ensuring high student achievement!

Burke’s six-step process helps educators create tasks that promote learning for all students and write rubrics linked straight to the requirements of state standards. Featuring templates and sample tasks, rubrics, and units, this updated bestseller shows educators how to create more complex performance tasks, work in grade-level or vertical teams, and:

  • Apply the six-step process to link teaching and assessment to standards
  • Build their own tasks, checklists, and rubrics
  • Differentiate for special needs within standards-linked tasks
  • Share checklists and rubrics with students for ongoing formative assessment and self-assessment

Editorial Reviews

Julie Davis
"Kay Burke's authenticity naturally extends to her professional writing and speaking engagements. Her professional development opportunities attract educators who know they will walk away with new research, new strategies, and something to do TOMORROW. This wonderfully practical bookcontains real examples from real teachers, helpful checklists, and rubrics. I particularly like the application and reflection pages, and I wish every principal would use them with their teachers."
Mary Ellen Kotz
"At last, a text that I can use with my new teachers, experienced teachers and administrators that will make rubrics, to quote the author, “their friends.” Dr. Burke’s six steps can be easily implemented by all levels of educators immediately. Students will receive meaningful feedback, allowing them to assess their performance and set goals to make their work even better. The end results are empowered teachers, engaged students, and increased student performance."
Nancy Larimer
"This book outlines an easy-to-follow process for designing and organizing standards-based instruction that engages students in performance-based learning. Kay Burke effectively shows teachers how to use checklists and rubrics to put students in the driver’s seat of their own assessment for learning."
Richie Wood
"I have employed and tested the methods outlined in this must-have book in my own high school biology classes. The six steps enabled me to have a 100% pass rate on our high-stake exam with gain scores that almost doubled those of traditionally taught classrooms. Teaching instructional design classes for a college at the master’s level, I highly encourage students to follow the plan outlined in this book."
