Here's What People Are Saying

I am particularly charmed by the anchor papers. They provide an excellent indicator of what good work looks like so the teachers can immediately identify the levels of work that can be expected. In addition, the commentary on the anchor papers guide the teachers in using the rubrics so they may develop thoughtful and significant comments for the very important feedback they must give to their students.
