We were fortunate enough to have some great presentations from Linda Darling-Hammond and Jesse Rothstein at our last TPEP Task Force meeting on November 10th. Here’s a video of Linda’s presentation and the stream for Jesse’s (via Webex). Thanks to both of them for taking time out of their schedules to share their expertise with us.
On October 14th, 2011, TPEP & AWSP brought in Cathy Taylor from the University of Washington to speak to our pilot sites about the dos and don’ts of rubric building. Kennewick and Wenatchee also presented their rubrics and shared their experience around the development and philosophies behind their principal rubrics.
