Monuments

Monuments

Students will view six examples of monuments from a variety of cultures throughout history. They will choose one example and write a short interpretation of it. They will then create a drawing of their own idea for a monument, designed to reflect a style and culture of their choice. Afterward, they will write a short reflection describing the culture and the intent of their design.

This item has been voluntarily field-tested by Michigan teachers with a non-representative sample of students.


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.
