fORMATIVE Assessment


Presentation Rubric

I usually begin the lesson with a daily topic. That topic can be a prompt about the lesson or a short video on the lesson and I would have the student provide their opinion via the LMS Discussion board. For example, I would post different short film clips of active shooter and/or natural disaster that are news based and provide a prompt for students to respnd to about them. Such prompts would be: Do you think more people could have been saved if the process for lockdown was different? If you were in charge of the natural disaster team, how would you evacuate the building in order to save everyone?

The public presentation for this lesson can be in two separate items. The students are to present their Active Shooter Handbook to a panel that consist of the instructor, an administrator and an industry representative. The students will also participate in a mock mass with the Health Sciences and Law and Public Safety classes.

In this lesson, the instructor will serve as the facilitator and provide weekly feedback on the student assignment. If the notes that the students are having difficulty with a concept, there will be mini lesson on the topic/concept. Instructor will also provide written feedback on final products. (deliverables)

Students will utilize various information facets (online, in person, interviews, film review) to develop an understanding of what disaster events are and why containing them is so pivotal. They will also pose various questions via their daily journal and discussion post to address.
