High Quality Work: The Products of Deeper Learning
“As a result, my confidence in my ability to create quality work grew and I felt proud of the work I had done.” OWL student
With the foundation of a standards-based grading system with students attempting to master learning targets working toward "E work"(Exemplar) quality is part of every class room conversation. Teachers attempt to develop lessons that not only challenge the students academically, but also engage the learner authentically and task each student to develop craftsmanship. No matter what the format, students through critique and revision provide feedback to their peers to help them improve through each draft of a product.
