Best quote ever! "Formative data is to blood work from an annual physical exam as summative data is to blood work from an autopsy. The first informs the patient in a way that can bring about changes in diet or lifestyle, while the second provides information after the fact, without the possibility of modification to diet or lifestyle" (Venables,p. 92).
Lesson One--I learned to read the rubric carefully and that it is better to be in your own classroom when doing these modules!

Lesson 3: I'm excited that I'm back in the classroom and able to work with my students again! I am working on explaining how I incorporate various techniques to best prepare my students!
Final Lesson: I am so proud of my students. The informal assessments really helped prepare students for the summative assessment!
