Lesson Rubric - National POWER Project
In many projects, teachers are creating NGSS aligned lessons and units. National’s POWER Project Evaluation Rubric for Units of Learning is used in a variety of ways to assist the development of high quality NGSS curriculum.
First, the teachers use this tool as a guide while creating units of learning. Teachers review the units using four categories:
Overview, Background and Context
NGSS Learning Sequence
Learning Opportunities for the Integration of CA Standards
The project’s team also uses the rubric to give ongoing feedback to teachers during the unit creation process. When the units are complete, the teachers present them to another grade level who also use the rubric as a guide for the feedback they provide to presenting teachers. Teachers use this feedback to finalize their units.
