Great idea for authentic assessment By bethb on 04/19/2012 - 14:11
I think this unit because it can be used at the pace of the students, as a project when the lesson is finished while reteaching may be occuring with other students. I really wish the documents were able to be edited, I don't like to have to recreate things, but I also don't want another teacher's name or school on all of the worksheets.
