Collaboration / Communication

Collective Intelligence

I did not attempt to address the objective at hand, or did not contribute to the functionality of the group as a whole. 

I disregarded or disrespected the contributions of the other members.

I worked with others to achieve a common objective or goal by: 

  • listening to other members’ ideas, but sometimes I let my own opinions/biases devalue the contributions of others.
  • attempting to share responsibilities, but they were not equitably or purposefully divided.
  • partially fulfilling my responsibilities to my group.
  • exchanging ideas with my partner/group/ team but not evaluating the ideas critically.
I worked responsibly with others to achieve a common objective or goal by: 
  • respectfully communicating and exchanging individual ideas.
  • equitably and purposefully dividing roles/responsibilities to encourage collaboration from each individual.
  • listening carefully to and evaluating other members’ contributions.
  • constructively building upon the thinking of others and questioning group assumptions to achieve the objective or goal.
I fully met the MPS standard with at least one of the following:
  • Listening carefully to and valuing other members’ contributions and synthesizing them with personal knowledge and insightful ideas
  • Showing leadership by employing the expertise of members when equitably dividing the roles/ responsibilities
  • Drawing out my peers’ ideas and participation through constructive questioning of group assumptions
  • Advocating for my or underrepresented perspectives or views when necessary

Product Creation

Effectively use a medium to communicate important information.
 

I created a product that:
  • shows little consideration for context or purpose.
  • is incomplete or confusing.
  • required teacher support to synthesize information.
I created a product that: 
  • uses a medium that may not match the intended purpose for a given audience.
  • communicates ideas with a vague sense of purpose.
  • conveys statements that may be unrelated to the importance of the topic.
  • required some teacher support to synthesize information.
I created an original product for an audience, using a particular medium, maximizing its features, to make powerful statements by:
  • communicating important ideas for a given purpose.
  • making connections between sources, self, and world.
  • purposefully synthesizing information, models, strategies, mentor texts, and peer or teacher feedback.
