Assessment Workshop at the Renaissance Center
It was a baker's dozen at the Renaissance Center in Dickson this past Saturday who joined me for some assessment fun! Participants explored a variety of assessment strategies for the elementary classroom by participating in a modeled unit plan in which we created Alter Ego sculptures! The results were delightful! What a fun way to learn how to develop check lists, design student self-evaluation rubrics, and link units for evidence collection for the new Tennessee Arts Growth Assessment being implemented around the state and across the country. The link is the nuts and bolts for anyone who is working on the assessment but this link is for the pretty overview, if you wonder about the who, what and why of the Tennessee Arts Growth Assessment. I think some amazing connections were made on Saturday and I hope to see all of you at the Tennessee Art Education Association Conference for my last Elementary Division Meeting in October or the National Art Education conference where I will present a hands on workshop on assessment in March!
Check out some of these amazing Alter Egos!!
We ran out of time for the reflective writing that would describe these amazing characters in detail so for now they will have to remain the secret identities of some of your favorite art teachers!!
