The Educator's PLN

The personal learning network for educators

This discussion group is is intended for users to explain why they are using the CWRA, the value they derive from it, and to answer questions others might have about it.   

At St. Gregory, as my students explain, just the fact that we are administering this authentic performance task assignment to them is communicating what we value.  They appreciate enormously that we value their original, analytical thinking about real world issues. 

But it also informs us with data on how we are doing as a school adding value to our students' higher order thinking skills.   And we can use those results to improve our school's success at this most important task. 

Why are you using it, or how can we answer questions from potential users?   Join the discussion.
