alicia your ideas sound fascinating. there really detailed and it's obvious that you took a lot time to carefully plan out this assessment. now that the school year is coming to an end, i was just curious to see how this idea worked in your class? do you think you be able to use the same checklist each year with the variety of skill levels? how much time does it take? do you have a sage partner that works with you? if so, do you take turns or do you divide the class and have seperate checklists? these were just a few questions i had,overall i think it would be a wonderful idea to incoroporate.
