Local Event Study Rubric (Jigsaw)
At the end of each three cycles, you have an opportunity to earn extra credit (4 points) by completing a Local Event Assignment. The Local Event Assignment is an Event Study Assignment performed individually.
Goal: Identify the E > S, S > E, and S > S interactions for the spheres Then synthesize the E > S, S > E, and S > S interactions into causal chains.
Your Local Event assignment needs to include:
. List of the E > S, S > E, and S > S interactions with reasoning and support.
. List of chains of interactions between the event and 3 or more spheres.
You should write as many E > S, S > E, and S > S interactions as you can that include accuracy, depth of reasoning, and quality of support. Use the rubric below to evaluate and improve your analysis.
Using your E > S, S > E, and S > S interactions, create causal chains. For more, see Jigsaw Assessment.
|4 ||3||2||1 ||Rationale |
|Presents precise and meticulous scientific understanding.||Uses currently accepted scientific understanding in explaining effects||Uses currently accepted scientific understanding in explaining interactions.||Attempts to explain interactions, but strays from accepted scientific understanding.||Explain your rating with specific references to your work as evidence.|
Depth of Reasoning
|Uses arguments from at least two perspectives for most of the effects and interactions. ||Uses scientific reasoning, concepts, and processes to explain each effect and interaction.||Includes science concepts and processes in the reasons provided for each effect and interaction. ||Explains at least two reasons for each effect and interaction.||Explain your rating with specific references to your work as evidence.|
Quality of Support
| Cites data and respected authorities, as well as logic, explanations and examples to support statements about the interactions and effects.||Cites data and respected authorities to support statements about the interactions and effects. ||Cites data from multiple sources to support statements about the interactions and effects.||Cites respected authorities to support statements about the interactions and effects.||Explain your rating with specific references to your work as evidence.|
