I am teaching summer school this year in math. Our summer school is only 12 days and is only available to students who have failed the class. When looking at the requirements for teachers this year, I noticed one thing was each teacher is going to be required to add in a participation grade. I asked around about this and it is based on your own guidelines. I am planning on flipping this classroom a little bit. I am going to have the students take a pretest. From this, I am going to be able to determine what they already know and what they still need help with. I am then going to set up a daily schedule for them with what they need to accomplish and a quiz at the end of each day for me to use as guidance on if they need more practice or not. I have come up with this little rubric to use and would love to have some advice on what others may have used or what I could possibly do to make it better. Here is what I was working on: 5 – Did all required work correctly 4 – Attempted all required work but all was not done correctly 3 – Attempted the work, but did not complete 1 topic 2 – Attempted the work, but did not complete 2 topics 1 – Attempted the work, but did not complete any of the topics 0 – Did none of the required work On a given day they will have anywhere from 2 or more topics. They only have 12 days to cover the whole year and are with me for 4 hours a day. They will be given a little individual lesson and then will be set out to work on some examples. I will then come back and check the work. I will give it back for them to correct if mistakes. They will be able to ask any questions on the lessons and practice problems. I was thinking this could be my participation scale because I will already be checking the work.
