Task Bank

Task Bank

The goal of the MCIEA Task Bank is to provide models of high-quality performance tasks, rubrics, and curriculum planning documents from educators in MCIEA districts. Sharing across schools will illustrate the ways MCIEA educators are using performance assessment to measure in multiple ways the deeper thinking skills that we want our students to learn and demonstrate. The MCIEA Task Bank depends on educator willingness to share with each other!

Students will be asked to submit a pitch to a film production company in which they share why their memoir should be turned into a film. Students will take the memoirs they have written during a larger unit and develop a summary that emphasizes the plot, the major arc of their story, along with the major characters in their memoir. Additionally, students will be asked to do an analysis of the tone and mood of their own text to create a soundtrack.
