Assessment Matters

As a teacher, you need to have solid knowledge of formative and summative assessment and how each can help you ensure students are mastering key contents and skill. You also need to be able to take the information gleaned from assessments and make decisions that support the learning of all your students. This week, you will build on your previous assignment from last week and integrate the knowledge from your research and the readings.

Watch the following videos:
a.Rick Wormeli: Formative and Summative Assessment

b.TEDxSoCal ? Dr. Brian Stecher ? Cultivating Thriving Schools
Both videos examine the role of accountability and how they can and do impact our work in schools. Brian Stecher specifically discusses three indicators that drive everything that happens in schools, while Rick Wormeli outlines how different types of knowledge are assessed.

In this assignment, please address the following topics and questions:
a.Analyze the roles of assessment and evaluation in school improvement and in measuring educational quality.

b.Examine and explain your perspectives on the roles and trends related to assessment in education.

c.Evaluate the value of both types of assessment and, specifically, the role you see assessment playing in your classroom.

d.Evaluate the roles of both formative and summative assessment in the classroom. How does each form of assessment support learning? In what ways can the teacher use the data from assessments to influence learning in the classroom?

e.Review your work from your Week Four Assignment and provide specific details of what you see as the next step in developing an assessment for the Common Core State Standard you identified in the activity you presented.

Writing through a Lens:Bill McKibben from “Earth” and environmental policy

| April 20, 2014

PROMPT:
Readings: Bill McKibben from Earth: Making a Life on a Tough New Planet and from Alan Weisman from The World Without Us

This essay should be 4-5 pages in MLA format. Please be aware of correct MLA format

Assignment: Using the information from one of the two readings for this section of the class, examine and analyze an energy policy or environmental policy (per our work in class). This is an interesting way to look at this issue. McKibben and Weisman take very strong positions, and McKibben offers some dire warnings. Analyze this information and “apply” it to a policy that you can find on many different online sources. Remember, however, that the policy has to be written tangible text. Almost all elected officials, governing bodies, corporations, universities, and/or policy makers have websites where they state positions on these issues. It is important to remember that you are not looking for exact matches in the ideas. You are looking at the way the writer’s (McKibben or Weisman) ideas are different as well as the same as the policy. There will be areas where both happen. This is the beginning of what we might call “putting the texts in conversation with each other” or intertextuality. While the authors are not addressing each other, scholars often attempt to make them speak to each other. This involves reaching some understanding of what is implicit and explicit in the texts; in other words, you have to be analytical of all the texts used in this essay. The most challenging part of writing this paper will probably be avoiding the compare/contrast approach; your analysis should go considerably further than that.
From Rosenwasser & Stephen Writing Analytically: When using a reading as a lens for better seeing what is going on in something you are studying, assume that the match between the lens and your subject will never be exact. It is often in the area where things don’t match up exactly that you will find your best opportunity for having ideas. Here are two guidelines for applying lens A (McKibben/Weisman) to subject B (policy).
1. Think about how lens A both fits and does not fit subject B: avoid the matching-exercise mentality.
2. Actively seek out the differences between lens A and subject B: use these differences to probe both A and B (Yes, but . . .).
Here are some tips: To prepare for the writing of this essay, you might first identify one important point in one of the writer’s essays and the evidence he uses to develop that position. You cannot cover all of the reading; instead, create a focus on an idea that seems most relevant and of interest to you. Examine and analyze the policy in the same way. Look for the ways that idea of McKibben or Weisman work both with and against the policy.
When you begin to write, the first part of the essay might name McKibben or Weisman, his text, and his main idea. This could be followed by a brief but focused summary. In the same paragraph or a following paragraph, you might do the same with the policy. Introduce it; explain whose policy, etc. The body of the essay then “reads” the policy through the lens of this main idea and “the components” of the idea that you have established.

ADDITIONAL INFO:

The policy I will be using is: Georgia Environmental Policy Act of 1991 (GEPA)
also you do not have to use both readings, if you want you only have to use one.

Holocaust

| April 20, 2014

Alain Resnais, Night and Fog

TOPIC 2: In her article on Night and Fog, Sandra Flitterman-Lewis suggests that the power and merit of Night and Fog stems in part from the way the film addresses the viewer and seeks to make him/her – to use Resnais’ own words – “break out of habitual ways of seeing.” In particular, Flitterman-Lewis claims that through various cinematic techniques, Resnais seeks to transform the viewer from an “observer” into a “witness” in which he or she is asked to “see [him- or herself] in the scene” (209).

Analyze and examine the cinematic strategies through which Resnais seeks to make the viewers reflect on their relationship to what they see in the film (and thus make the very act of “viewing” the subject of Night and Fog). What aim(s) do these strategies serve? In what concrete ways might these strategies be designed to get us to reflect on our relationship to images related to the Holocaust? In what sense might such strategies be an integral means to creating the “universal” message which the film seeks to convey? Can such strategies potentially lead to distortions in the representation of the Holocaust
II. EXPECTATIONS/REQUIREMENTS

?ESSAY FORMAT AND GRADING CRITERIA:

Your task for this assignment is to write a critical essay in which you analyze one or several of the Holocaust films we have watched in this course, develop an argument/thesis of your own throughout the essay, and support it with evidence from the film(s) and from the scholarly essays you have read for each film. A critical essay is the reflection and product of YOUR OWN THINKING, based on your own analytical and critical engagement with the film(s) we watched and text(s) we read.

An outstanding (“A”) critical essay will:

?? include an appropriate, effective title.
?? include a complete and effective introduction that identifies YOUR topic, the issues and the questions to be discussed and concludes with YOUR thesis statement, to which the introduction LOGICALLY leads and for which it PREPARES the reader.
?? contain a clear and concise thesis statement, i.e. the ARGUMENT that you will advance, develop, and support throughout your essay.
?? offer a sustained, careful ANALYSIS of specific scenes in the film(s) and
? use the results of this analysis effectively as EVIDENCE to develop and support the writer’s argument.
?? effectively engage with the arguments and ideas of the scholars whose work we have read to develop and support the writer’s argument.
?? properly CITE, in according with the MLA Style Guidelines, the sources it uses (such as films and scholarly articles) through proper in-text citations with corresponding entries in an attached works cited list.
?? be well and coherently organized and have effective logical transitions between paragraphs.
? have coherently developed paragraphs that begin with a clear and concise topic sentence.
? be thoroughly revised, in particular for grammatical and spelling errors.

?LENGTH AND FORMAT:
6-8 pages (not more – not less!); double-spaced; 1 inch margins; font: Times New Roman; font size 11.5 or 12. List of Works Cited excluded from page count.

?USE OF OUTSIDE/SCHOLARLY SOURCES:
In you essay, you should be using at least ONE of the RELEVANT scholarly articles we have read and discussed in relation to a specific film (for example, Bartov’s article about Schindler’s List would be very much relevant to an essay about Schindler’s List, but also to an essay about Shoah and even Night and Fog, in so far as he at least briefly discusses both films; of course: “relevance” is entirely determined by YOUR topic and argument). “Using” an outside source means to CRITICALLY ENGAGE with the author’s idea(s) and argument(s) and EFFECTIVELY mobilize them to DEVELOP your own argument. That means, for example, that you could use someone else’s analysis and argument to support your own; or to disagree with the author and make a different argument. However you use other writers’ arguments and ideas, CAREFULLY think about what they are trying to say first and what evidence they provide in support of their arguments; don’t accept their arguments at face value! Take, for example, Omer Bartov’s argument that the conclusion of Schindler’s List performs a “banal humanization” of Schindler. What is Bartov saying here? In what sense is Schindler “humanized” in the conclusion (he wasn’t “human” before…?), and what makes this humanization “banal”? In what sense does Bartov’s argument serve as a criticism of the film? However you use the ideas and arguments of others, remember that these arguments and ideas NEVER SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES! Thus, if you quote someone else’s idea, YOU will need to EXPLAIN it to your reader.

?PROPER CITATION:
You MUST appropriately cite and document the ideas and arguments of others if you use them in your article (regardless of whether you PARAPHRASE or QUOTE) and for your own thinking, through proper (1) in-text citation and a corresponding entry in an attached (2) works cited list. Your citations should follow the rules set out in the style handbook of the Modern Language Association (so called “MLA Style”). MLA Style Guidelines are widely available over the internet and can easily be accessed through a google-search.

?ANALYSIS:
One of the keys to successfully planning and writing a high quality critical essay on one of the films is CAREFUL ANALYSIS of both scenes from the film and the arguments of scholars. For the analytical dimension of this essay, it’s good to keep in mind the following things:

1. Focus your analysis on a limited number of select scenes from the film(s). Analyze, contextualize, and interpret those scenes in detail and use them effectively as EVIDENCE to develop and support your ideas and arguments. AVOID GENERALIZATIONS.
2. In order to engage in a close, careful analysis, it will be indispensable that you WATCH THE FILMS AGAIN (or at least the scenes you want to focus on in your paper). DO NOT “CITE” AND DISCUSS THE FILMS FROM MEMORY – that will only lead to vague generalizations.
3. Focus on DETAILS in the films and individual scenes (the “things which are minutiae or detail,” as Raul Hilberg put it), focusing on elements such as:

- Camera perspective(s) and angles
- Tracking shots/camera movement
- Montage
- Light
- Sound
- Narrative
- Music/Soundtrack
- Relationship between narrative/voice and images
- Gestures

?CONTEXTUALIZATION:
One essential element of good writing about film or literature is effective, balanced contextualization. That means that for your reader to understand your discussions, you will need to sufficiently and effectively INTRODUCE and DESCRIBE the scenes you will analyze and discuss in your essay. It does not matter that you are writing this essay for a reader (me) who has also seen the film because NO ONE has SEEN the film LIKE YOU have seen it. In other words: describing the scenes from the film IS already an act of interpretation. “Contextualizing” simply means that you need to provide enough descriptive information – “context” – for your reader to be able to PICTURE and UNDERSTAND the scene you are discussing and understand what place it has in the film.

Synopsis

| April 20, 2014

Mrs. D?Angelo has been into the ER every 3 weeks for 6 months, complaining of painful gallstones. She is a Medicaid patient and does not present with the appropriate symptoms to make her eligible for immediate surgery.

This situation address one of the problems that low-income, Medicaid patients face when seeking medical care for non-life-threatening illnesses. Because Mrs. D?Angelo only exhibits 1 out of 3 blockage symptoms, gallstone removal is considered elective. Medicaid will not pay for the procedure and she will be put on an 18-month waiting list for surgery. After hearing this, Mrs. D?Angelo states that her neighbor had private insurance and got a removal the very next day. Lewis sends her home with a pain prescription.

What are the pros and cons of waiting before surgically removing Mrs. D?Angelo?s gall bladder?
Do privately insured patients get better treatment?
In this case, how are you defining better treatment?

Discussion:

Sometimes, the ?bottom line? can limit the type and amount of treatment a patient can receive. Many physicians realize that waiting for the situation to escalate might cause further costly problems for the Medicaid patient, but cannot provide the patient with the same level of care as a privately-insured patient. Considering the situation presented and the information learned from this class:

Do you think that Medicaid should review their policy on whether this condition and similar ones like it should be classified as an elective surgery, that is, should Medicaid make such diagnosis/condition required or non-elective surgery?
How would any change in this policy affect the cost of health care for that individual as well as all of us?
