September 12, 2007 — Little Falls, MN — Atomic Learning, award-winning provider of Web-based software training and curriculum resources, has added an assessment rubric to their popular technology-infused lesson plans, Lesson Accelerators.
Lesson Accelerators combine a subject, like math or social studies, with a software application to create an engaging project for students or a staff development exercise for teachers. For example, one Lesson Accelerator calls for creating a PowerPoint presentation on the Common Gray Fox. Another project involves designing a comic book on health and fitness in Comic Life.
Lesson Accelerators include objectives, downloadable support materials, ideas for adapting and extending, tutorials that guide learners through the project step-by-step and now a rubric to make assessment simple and straightforward. Rubrics are customized for each individual Lesson Accelerator and can be used by the teacher to assess a student?s work, or by a student for self-assessment.
