Every Object Tells a Story

Every Object Tells a Story

Students will develop and perform impromptu scenes logically incorporating three seemingly unrelated items. The performances will be video recorded for scoring by the teacher using the provided rubrics.

This item has not yet been field-tested.


These are analytic rubrics. The column on the left shows the dimension that is being measured in the student’s performance. The levels across the top row indicate the performance level in the dimensions. Occasionally all dimensions and performance levels are exemplified by multiple students in a single recording.
