Watching the News: Performance Package, Minnesota Profile of Learning.
Minnesota State Dept. of Children, Families, and Learning, St. Paul.
Developed by classroom teachers during the development phase of Minnesota's Graduation Standards, this performance package is made up of locally designed assignments that, taken together, show whether a student has learned and can apply the knowledge and skills related to gathering information to answer questions. It begins with reference to the particular content standard addressed in the package, the educational level of the package (honors primary), and a summary statement of the content standard. It then describes the task associated with the student performances: complete an observation chart of news stories and create a weekly 3- to 5-minute newscast. It then offers specific statements from the standard regarding what students should know and should do, the products, task description, special notes, and feedback checklists for each task enumerated in the package.
