If you don’t really know what Y2K was, school was probably a different experience.The whole thing makes sense; if it didn’t, every state in the nation wouldn’t have adopted Standards and Standards Based Grading systems. Whatever complaints one might have of school, now or then, the teaching of Subjects, when done right, draws from a well of passion.An inspired teacher or student can motivate the least potential, because it’s not about the skill, or the test, or the class or the grade.The ‘Objectives’ are as narrowly prescribed and defined as possible.Classroom management is less about broad behavior and more about very specific action, centered around narrowly defined tasks and objectives.Rubric Gallery is a list of rubrics that have been made available to public by our members.This gallery is organized by subject and coursework type.You might spend a few weeks researching a subject, maybe jotting all your details on notecards, writing out an outline and then staying up all night on the final draft.Every subject usually involved quizzes and a comprehensive final exam.Are you teaching a component of the book, such as ‘characterization’?And if so, what aspect of ‘character’ are you teaching?
