Benchmarks of Interpersonal Communication: 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 demonstrating effective English language communication skills in personal, family, community, and/or work situations. It begins with reference to the particular content standard addressed in the package, the educational level of the package (high school), and a summary statement of the content standard. It then describes the tasks associated with the student performances: (1) analyze communication, interaction, and problem-solving strategies in a simulated situation, and make recommendations for improvement; (2) participate in a dialogue, and demonstrate effective speaking and listening skills; and (3) participate in a group, plan for and complete a project, and maintain a reflective record of involvement. 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.
