Peer Assessment of Text Structures

Peer Assessment

Mrs. Kyle’s fifth grade class, at Poquoson Elementary, worked in partners and cooperative groups to complete peer assessments of each other’s text structure booklets. In this activity, students used a rubric to determine if their peers had included specific text structures such as Compare and Contrast, Cause and Effect, and Problem and Solution. They also looked for use of signal words and accurate definitions and examples of the text structures they have been studying.
