In collaboration with Teaching Matters, the Instructional Technology Integration Specialist (ITIS) teachers in New York City's New York Region 9 periodically have Peer Review Days. In preparation for these presentations, ITIS teachers complete Project Plan Outlines, recording information about the projects they have developed with the teachers they are working with. Each outline, once completed is sent to the Region 9 Office electronically and is distributed to three other ITIS teachers on Peer Review Day. A few ITIS teachers have also begun to put their Project Plan Outlines online. These are linked below in this article.

Each ITIS brings rubrics and samples of student work Edit

  • Rubric(s) that the ITIS and the teacher have used to assess the project based learning unit or individual components of the unit (i.e., a writing rubric, a WebQuest rubric, etc.)
  • Three (or more) samples of student work from two students doing the project. This collection of PRINTED student work could include an Inspiration brainstorming map, written or typed drafts, a storyboard, a multimedia presentation in progress, a final multimedia presentation, a final essay with teacher comments, amongst other things.

The ITIS annotates each piece of student work that is submitted Edit

  1. Labels how well the student performed based on the criteria established in the rubric that the ITIS and the teacher have created (i.e., Excellent, Good, Fair, Poor)
  2. Provides a brief written comment stating why the work was evaluated as such.
  3. Lists teacher Resources used during the project (WebQuests, hotlists, TrackStars, Inspiration templates, handouts, etc.)

Each ITIS brings four copies of the Project Plan Outline and of the PRINTED student work samples with comments to share in small groups, and/or the work is linked to an Online Project Plan listed below.

Online Project Plans Edit

In the end it all about the student work. Follow this link to find a list of Project Plan Outlines that ITIS teachers have added to this Wikia. Keep in mind that the work linked to these outlines is representative. It could be work that is below standards, meets standards and exceeds standards.
