Free Group and Skit Evaluation Rubric

Description

Group work is always tricky to evaluate because there is so much going on. In addition, as educators, we are required to give detailed feedback on students’ performances.

I created this FREE document to make the teacher’s job easier, and to allow students to be responsible for their success as well.

Self-evaluation grids are a great way to guide students in their evaluations. Students will know exactly what is expected of them and will be made responsible for their success. This package can also easily be changed to be used as peer evaluations.

This self-evaluation grid will help students as well as teachers to assess students’ group work. When students use this grid to assess their work, there are no surprises when they receive their final mark. This grid, in particular, allows the students to become organized and responsible for their individual parts.

These self-evaluation grids are also very helpful to teachers:

❒ Helps the teacher justify the final mark;

❒ Helps to identify students’ weaknesses and strengths;

❒ Helps parents and students better understand the task required;

❒ Helps teachers create rubrics for the final evaluation.

Because of formatting issues, this package was created in a PDF document, but I can easily email you a Word file to be easily modified and changed according to the individual teacher’s needs.

FREE MISC. LESSON – “Free Trauma Informed School Counseling Confidentiality Posters”

by Whimsy in School Counseling
Kindergarten – 12th Grade

Confidentiality posters for your office! Free, snazzy, psychoeducational Confidentiality Posters for the Trauma Informed School Counselor. Because everything can be a learning moment, from the passive learning from your office decor to the active learning students encounter in your office and their classrooms. Various backgrounds, including dinosaurs, kittens, tribal print, unicorns, glitter, rainbow, chalkboard, tie-dye, galaxy print, and more!

Confidentiality posters are quite literally a necessity for school counselors, but that doesn’t mean they have to be scary or boring! In true school counseling style these confidentiality statements build on the standard exclusions to become an opportunity for education.

Each poster says this or a variation of this:

Confidentiality

(or, the rules about what stays between us and what doesn’t.)

Chats with the door open or in the hallway aren’t confidential… Other people can hear us!

When the door is closed everything you tell me stays between us unless…

1. You tell me you are going to hurt yourself.

2. You tell me someone is going to hurt you.

3. You tell me you are going to hurt someone.

4. There is a medical emergency.

5. You tell me something like “I can’t see the board in math!” I would ask the math teacher to move you to the front row and ask the school nurse to check your eyesight.

In other words, I only need to share the details of what we talk about if your wellbeing is at stake. I do this because I care and because I am legally bound to do so. I will always do my best to let you know before I share anything we talk about so it isn’t a surprise to you.

***************************************************************************

Want to pair this with a 15 minute micro-lesson on coping skills? Check out The Coping Skills Web!, an interactive, kinesthetic lesson that makes resiliency a little more concrete for teens and tweens.

Spelling Flip Book

Description

The Spelling Flip Book is designed to help young learners become familiar with spelling rules and to incorporate them into their work.

Students can color and personalize their flip books to enhance the spelling learning experience.

I always like encouraging my students to use their flip books as reference sheets when they are working to promote good spelling habits. The goal is that eventually, by using the flipbook when working, the student will begin to remember common errors made in the past and correct them. I have had much success with this strategy in my classes.

I’ve also included a color copy and an answer key – a total of 18 pages.
